cornbread, sausage, and pecan stuffing recipeI know that it is getting close, and that most of you have already finalized your Thanksgiving menus, but if you haven’t, I still have a few recipes to share with you.  Like this Cornbread, Sausage, and Pecan Stuffing.  I found it in this month’s issue of Country Living Magazine, shared from the The Fabulous Beekman Boys.  I do not like to make my stuffing inside the bird, so I always make it in a casserole dish.  I think that it is easier to cook your turkey, and the stuffing gets a nice crusty top, instead of soggy.  I know that it is a matter of personal preference.   I really could not have Thanksgiving without my family’s Johnson Stuffing, but I do like to make an additional stuffing or dressing to change it up a bit.  This stuffing was flavorful, savory, and easy to make.  If you do not have time to let the cornbread sit out overnight, toast it in a slow oven for a bit to dry it out.

I also want to thank you for all of the emails, comments, and messages on my Facebook wall.  My Facebook page is a great resource.  I asked a question the other day, and within minutes, I had lots of answers.  I am flattered that some of my family recipes are gracing your Thanksgiving tables, and that you trust me enough to ask me Thanksgiving questions.  I love answering them.  If I can help you between now and the big day, send me a message (bree at bakedbree dot com) or leave a comment, and I will try to answer you as quickly as I can.

Off to the Thanksgiving feast at the kid’s school.  Have a wonderful day.

1 1/2 cups coarse yellow cornmeal
2 Tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 stick butter

    This looks really good. I would probably substitute the sausage with chicken and add some dried cranberries or serve some whole berry cranberry sauce on the side.
