Ingredients

  • 8 ounces ground pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped (1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 4 cups crumbled corn bread

  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

1. Cook and stir sausage in a skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain meat; set aside. Melt margarine or butter in skillet. Add celery and onion; cook and stir about 10 minutes or until tender. Combine corn bread, white bread, drained sausage, celery mixture, pineapple, cranberries, pecans, oregano, sage, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Pour into a lightly greased 3-quart casserole. Cover and bake in a 350 degree F oven about 45 minutes or until heated through. Makes 12 servings.

2. Make-ahead tip: Refrigerate prepared stuffing, covered, up to one day before baking. Stuff turkey just before roasting.
