  • Brown sausage in a large skillet, in batches if necessary, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings. Return reserved drippings and sausage to skillet, and stir in onion and next 2 ingredients. Cook over medium heat 7 minutes or until tender, stirring often. Add sausage and vegetables to cornbread in bowl, and stir well. Pour chicken broth over cornbread mixture; stir well. (Mixture will be wet.)

  • Spoon dressing into a lightly greased roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until set and browned.

Chef's Notes

If you like your dressing a little more firm, reduce the amount of broth by 1/2 cup.
