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.

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!
