“To save some time you can make the cornbread well in advance, bake the cubes and freeze them until ready to use in the stuffing. Use this cornbread recipe as it is the perfect amount to make this stuffing and will gaurantee perfect results every time! For the cornbread a cast-iron 10-inch skillet is the best, but if you do not have one, the cornbread can be baked in a 9-inch baking dish with good results. I added in a can of sliced drained mushrooms to the casserole when I made it, but that is optional, also I have even made this using small breakfast pork sausages, instead of Italian sausages and it was still wonderful! Prep time does not include making the cornbread.”
