How to Make It

  2. Toast nuts in a large skillet over medium heat until aromatic (about 5 minutes), shaking pan occasionally; transfer to a bowl. Heat oil in pan; add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent (5-10 minutes). Add onion, corn bread, and next 5 ingredients to bowl with nuts.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°.

  4. Coat a 13- x 9-inch baking dish lightly with cooking spray. Place corn bread mixture in dish; cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, then uncover and bake another 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned and stuffing is thoroughly heated. Serve with turkey and gravy.
