    1 1/4 - 1 1/2  cups 
    chicken broth

Directions
1.
In a large skillet brown sausage over medium heat; drain. Remove from skillet; set aside.
2.
In the same skillet cook onion, sweet pepper, and celery in hot butter over medium heat until tender; set aside.
3.
In a large bowl combine bread cubes and corn bread. Add cooked sausage, onion mixture, poultry seasoning, black pepper, and, if desired, pecans. Drizzle with enough broth to moisten (about 1 cup), tossing lightly to combine. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, in a 325 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes or until heated through.
4.
Or use bread mixture to stuff one 10- to 12-pound turkey. (See stuffing tips.) Place any remaining stuffing in a casserole; drizzle with enough of the remaining chicken broth (1/4 to 1/2 cup) to make a stuffing of desired moistness. Cover and chill until ready to bake. Bake, covered, in a 325 degree oven alongside turkey for 40 to 45 minutes or until heated through. (For doneness temperatures and roasting times, see roasting chart.) Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Variation
  • Quick Sausage Stuffing: Prepare as above, except substitute 3 cups corn bread stuffing mix (one 8-ounce package) for the 4-1/2 cups crumbled corn bread. Reduce poultry seasoning to 1/2 teaspoon; omit the black pepper. Substitute water for the broth.
