This Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Apples is the picture of golden deliciousness. It’s slightly sweet, incredibly savory, and a favorite side dish at any holiday meal. You may never go back to bread stuffing again.
Yesterday, I promised a homemade Cornbread Stuffing that would knock your holiday socks off.
Today, I’m delivering.
I can’t tout the golden deliciousness of this Cornbread Stuffing enough. Hubby and I are both cornbread fiends. Once we bit into this and recovered from silent awe, we slapped each other a high five and agreed that cornbread stuffing is theeee best.
Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Apples has all this gloriousness going for it:
- Golden crusty exterior
- Moist, golden interior
- Slightly sweet and totally savory at the same time
- You can prepare most of it ahead of time (score!!!)
- You can make it vegetarian by omitting sausage and using veggie broth instead
We use granny smith apples for that toothsome crunch and lovely tartness that offsets the sweet cornbread. Plenty of onions, garlic, celery, and seasonings amp up the flavor of this starry side dish.
Feel free to add dried cranberries, if you’d like. I probably would have done that if I had some on hand the day I made this.
Really, how can this not be great? ⬆️
Just be sure to bake your cornbread the day before and let it air dry overnight. I use a homemade recipe for cornbread, but feel free to use a boxed brand in a pinch. As long as it makes enough for a 9×13 pan, you’re set.
Then toss and combine, bake all the goodness together, and voila.
Happy dance, happy smiles, & happy tummies are sure to follow.
Here’s to all the eats that’ll knock our holiday socks off.
