We got this recipe from our American cousins living in the south when we visited them for Christmas one year! It was so delicious and full of yummy flavours. They showed us how to make cornbread from scratch, which lends a soft, sweet taste to this recipe, however if you are short on time you can buy a cornbread mix from speciality shops online.
Scaled down the recipe for a trial run before Thanksgiving. Came out great! I'm not a fan of sage or poultry seasoning, so I used a bit of oregano instead. Had a great flavor. Left out the pine nuts, but will consider adding them in next time. Was a bit on the salty side, so for Thanksgiving, I'll use low-sodium chicken broth and not add any additional salt. Can't wait for the family to taste it! - 23 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Perfect! The only thing I changed was substituting unsalted sunflower kernels for the pine nuts. A cup of pine nuts was over 12 bucks at the grocery. The same amount of sunflower seeds was 1.40... - 23 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My sister was going to make Stove Top stuffing for Thanksgiving and even though I don't usually care for it, I really didn't want that. Did a quick search and decided to try this. OMG! Really good! But not a quick dish. So I adjusted some things a bit. I cooked the sausage & thick cut, peppered bacon and the onion & celery all the night before. Stored it all in a container refridgerated overnight. The next day added the rest of the ingredients as recipe dictates. I did consider omitting the pine nuts due to the expense however they are totally worth it. A bit soggy but I should've used the entire french bagette instead of worrying about following the measurements to the letter. I added Oregano, white pepper & garlic salt along with the spices as listed. Not sure it needed all the butter on top. Lots of left over so it can be served as a good breakfast dish with an egg over easy on top. I will make this again. - 25 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
