American cornbread and sausage stuffing

    30 min

    This is my American mother-in-law's recipe for Thanksgiving stuffing or "dressing" as she likes to call it. She uses cornbread which I like to make for my husband on special occasions but in a pinch you could just use regular breadcrumbs or a cornbread mix which you can buy off the internet. I love using this recipe for Christmas as it is ideal for both stuffing the turkey with, or just cooking separately.
