This stuffing recipe is so flavor-packed it's ridiculous! It complements any turkey, pork, or chicken dish! ***Disclaimer - 99% of the dishes represented by the photographs are shot with a Pro SLR camera and owned by me.

Italian sausage adds a unique flavor to this stuffing. Combining cornbread with plain bread cubes keeps this stuffing from becoming too soggy. We love the crunch pecans give this side dish. It's an easy stuffing to prepare, yet your guests will think you spent all day making it.
