[Recipe] Sausage & Cornbread Stuffing Recipe

Hold on tight, I’m about to give you the best stuffing recipe you’ll ever find (You’re welcome). 

Someone made this for a friends-giving about 4 years ago and I’ve been making it evers since and it’s always been a big hit! Now, two days post-Thanksgiving, it’s still going strong. I’ve discovered it’s not just for the table with turkey…it is nothing less than the “little black dress” of the holiday 🙂

It’s great on the table, but it’s also a delicious side with eggs for breakfast (come on…sausage, cornbread, eggs…it’s perfect!), on an open face turkey sandwich for lunch, etc. I’d eat it for days if I had made more! Hope you enjoy!
