Ingredients

  • 1 batch Classic Cornbread Stuffing Recipe*
  • 1 Pound sausage
  • 1 Cup toasted pecans

Directions

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. 

Sausage Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Sausage Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
