Equipment

  • Large skillet
  • 9x13 baking dish or large cast iron skillet

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs cornbread about 8 cups
  • 3 pork sausage about ¾ lb, casings removed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or other oil
  • 1 large Vidalia onion roughly chopped
  • 3 Tbsp fresh sage finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh oregano or thyme, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 ½ tsp Kosher salt divided
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper divided

Instructions

  • Cube the cornbread. Preheat an oven to 375 F. Cut the cornbread into large cubes about 1 ½ -2" in size. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Brown the sausage. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add Italian sausage, then cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Sauté the onion. Add chopped onion, season with ½ tsp Kosher salt, then cook 4-6 minutes, or until light golden brown. Add 3 Tbsp chopped sage and 2 Tbsp chopped oregano, then stir well. Transfer to the mixing bowl with cornbread cubes.
  • Mix wet ingredients. In a 2 cup measuring cup, whisk together ¾ cup chicken broth, ⅔ cup heavy cream, 2 eggs, 2 tsp Kosher salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper.
  • Gently toss cornbread dressing. Pour the wet ingredients onto the cornbread mixture, then very gently toss together to evenly coat being careful not to break the cornbread up too much.=
  • Bake the dressing. Transfer the cornbread to a 9x13 casserole or baking dish that's been coated with cooking spray, then spread into an even layer. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is browned and crispy. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Instead of a 9x13 casserole dish, you can bake this straight in a large cast iron skillet! Serve it family-style right out of the pan!
