Sausage Cornbread Dressing Recipe – Just in Time for Thanksgiving

I mentioned our first hosted Thanksgiving dinner last year and shared the recipe to Aunt Barbara’s Sausage Cornbread dressing. It can also be sausage cornbread stuffing if you decide to put it in your bird.  I figured I would post this again – before Thanksgiving this time…

Aunt Barbara’s Sausage Cornbread Dressing

  • ½ Loaf of day old Bread, torn into pieces (50 cents)
  • 4 boxes of Jiffy Cornbread Mix ($2.00 on sale)
  • 3 Eggs (50 cents)
  • 1 Onion (25 cents)
  • 2 Cups Celery, diced ($1.00)
  • 2 Sticks Butter ($1.50)
  • 5 Cans Cream of Celery Soup ($6.00)
  • 1-2 Pounds Jimmy Dean Sausage (we went with 2 for $8.00)
  • 8 Ounces White Mushrooms, diced ($3.50)
  • 48 Ounces Chicken Broth ($2.00)
  • 2 teaspoons Sage (25 cents)
  • 1 Tablespoon Poultry Seasoning (25 cents)
  • ½ teaspoon Salt ($negligible)
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper ($negligible)
  • Total Cost – $21.75-$25.75 for two 9″x13″ pans

1. Preheat Oven to 350° F and TAKE OFF RINGS and WATCHES – trust me.

2. Cook Cornbread per directions on box. Let Cool.

3. Brown Sausage, drain, let cool.

4. Crumble Bread and Cornbread into a large mixing bowl. Mix together well with the dry seasonings.

5. Saute Onion, Celery, and Mushrooms in Butter until Onions are translucent.

6. Mix Chicken Broth, Eggs, and the Onion mixture above together in a different large bowl.

7. Combine Breads, Liquids, and Sausage together and stir until evenly mixed. You will need to use the biggest pot you have, lol.

Everything Combined

8. Pour into two 9×13 aluminum pans.

9. Bake in oven for 60 – 90 min until the edges are browing and it isn’t sloppy anymore. We actually left it in for about 10 minutes too long as you can see from the pic below, but it was still very yummy.

Done and Yummy

10. Let cool for 10 min before serving.

Each pan contains at least 12 healthy servings!

Hope you all like it as much as I do!

This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too!  Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm!

  1. Looks good. Are you having Thanksgiving dinner at your new house this year?

  2. @Everybody, thanks! I am making myself hungry looking at that last picture this late at night…

    @Mandy, oops! Oh well, look at it like Christmas dressing. 🙂

    @Ivy, we’ll hopefully have time to make this next week…we’ll see. 🙂

    @Kim, we are hosting a Thanksgiving with our closest friends on Wednesday night. It’s like a trial run without family drama, lol. 🙂

  3. Ohhhhh i love cornbread stuffing! Sooo good.

    That’s an interesting kind of casserole-like affair. Sometimes we do that, too, if there’s more than the turkey can hold.

    My mother used to substitute cornbread for part of the regular bread in her stuffing. She DID make an incredible stuffing, by gosh.
