If you were to ask me what my favorite Thanksgiving dish is, before you could even get the question out I would exclaim, “the stuffing!” I honestly would be perfectly fine with having just stuffing as my Thanksgiving meal and then some stuffing for dessert. Yep, I’m a fan.
For years we have always had the traditional stuffing; in the bird, standard bread crumbs, maybe the occasional apple or nut variety, etc. I’ve been wanted to try sausage cornbread stuffing for several years now, and today is the day. Whoa! This stuff is like a party in your mouth! The cornbread brings a touch of sweetness to the party; Jimmy Dean nails it with the delicious addition of savory sage in their premium sausage roll.. and the parsley is a wonderful, bright finale. Why did I wait so long to try this holiday delight? I highly recommend switching up your standard stuffing this holiday season and trying this tasty alternative. Sausage is for more than just breakfast!
