Sausage and Pecan Stuffing

Patricia Stagich

The Italians can be thanked for sausage in stuffing, and this recipe adds extra flavor with a nutty taste from the toasted pecans. 


Prepare the Classic Cornbread Stuffing and set aside before baking. 

In a medium sauté pan, brown the sausage over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a spoon as you go. Add the cooked sausage and toasted pecans to the stuffing and stir well. Bake in the oven according to the stuffing's directions.
