This recipe is V I C T O R Y. This is what our Mama would say when something was real good and she would do a cheer. We just have to say that we think Thanksgiving should be every week. We can’t understand why cornbread dressing is limited to Thanksgiving. This is got to be one of our all time favorite foods. Being the heathenetts that we were we would eat it before Mama could get it in the oven. We would stand around the pot like vultures waiting to get a taste.

Cornbread Dressing
with Sausage

What you are going to need-
Cornbread, crumbled (recipe follows)
1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
2 sticks butter
3 chicken bouillons
4-5 stalks celery, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
8 green onions, white and green chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped very fine
3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
3-4cups chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
4 eggs, beaten

This is what you need to do-
Make up your cornbread. While that’s in the oven brown your sausage. Remove sausage from the pan leaving some of the drippings. There is a lot of flavor left in that skillet and we sure don’t want to waste it. Add your butter to the skillet and let it melt. Next, add your chicken bouillon, celery and onion and cook until translucent, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Next add green onions, garlic and parsley. Stir around for a few minutes. Pour the vegetable mixture and browned sausage over the crumbled cornbread. Add your stock, stir it up real good and then give it a little ole taste. If it needs some salt and pepper, add it. Lightly beat eggs and add a little of the cornbread mixture. Then add it back to the cornbread mixture and stir it up real good. Pour mixture into a greased 13x9x2 casserole dish and bake until dressing is cooked through, about 45 – 60 minutes.
