Ingredients

  • 4 cups sourdough bread, cut into cubes
  • 4 cups cornbread, cut into cubes
  • EVO
  • 4 slices bacon, sliced in ¼ inch pieces
  • 2 TBS garlic herbed butter *, see my recipe below
  • 1 lb ground sausage, I would suggest a mild sausage
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 2 TBS fresh sage, chiffonade
  • 2 cups stock, I would suggest chicken or turkey
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • Salt & pepper, for seasoning

Instructions

  • Begin by tearing or cutting the sourdough and cornbread into bite sized pieces. Add the bread to a large bowl and toss with a bit of EVO and salt & pepper. Then add the bread to baking sheets and toast at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and dry. Remove from the oven once ready and set aside.
  • While the bread is toasting, prepare the veggies and sage. Also slice your bacon and add those to a large frying pan and par-cook on medium.
  • Remove the bacon from the fry pan and place on a paper towel to absorb the extra fat. Set aside for garnishing later.
  • Add the 2TBS of garlic herb butter to your fry pan with the bacon fat and melt on medium low.
  • Add your celery and onion to the fry pan and cook for ~5 minutes and season with a bit of salt & pepper.
  • Now add your sausage to the veggies and cook until the pink has been removed from the sausage, 5-10 minutes. Note: You don't want to over cook your veggies and sausage, you still want your veggies to have a bite and if your sausage isn't cooked completely, it will finish in the oven bake
  • Add your garlic, poultry season and sage and cook for another few minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside the pan.
  • Now let's assemble the stuffing. In a large bowl, add your toasted bread, sausage, veggies, stock, wine and eggs and toss together.
  • Add the stuffing mixture to a large greased casserole baking dish and top with your par-cooked bacon.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. You'll know it's ready once it sets and those amoras have filled your kitchen.
  • Serve as a side and enjoy, cheers ❤.

Notes

*If you don't make the garlic herb butter; I would suggest adding 2TBS of butter, 1TBS of thyme and rosemary and another clove of garlic; in replacement.
