Homemade Corn Muffin Stuffing

Updated on August 15, 2007

This recipe for Cornbread Stuffing has been passed down in my family for generations. I am not sure how it began, but it doesn't matter because it is so good. The first Thanksgiving after I was married I made this stuffing and after dinner, my husband was immediately on the phone to his brother to rave about the stuffing. About how good it was and how it wasn't from a box like they were used to growing up. It is very easy to make and as always, cooking it from scratch will save you money.


1 box of corn muffin mix

Whatever ingredients are called for on the corn muffin mix - usually eggs and milk, sometimes butter as well

1 medium onion

Turkey broth or chicken broth

2 teaspoons of sage


Bake corn bread per the mix instructions. Cook in a one quart casserole dish - you will use this dish for the stuffing as well. You can make the corn bread the night before, so that there is less work to do on the day of your meal. Chop the onion into small pieces - this can also be done ahead of time and stored in a ziploc bag.

When you are ready to make the stuffing, break up the corn bread with a fork, right in the casserole dish. Add the onion and sage and mix well. Once things are mixed together, you need to add the broth. I usually make this stuffing at Thanksgiving and use the broth from the turkey. Pour in enough broth that the entire stuffing is saturated, mixing well. At this point cover and bake on 350 for 1 hour.

Sometimes there isn't enough broth for both stuffing and gravy and if that is the case I will divide the turkey broth between the two dishes and use canned chicken broth to make up the difference. If you aren't making this with a turkey, then chicken broth is fine as well and I am guessing that vegetable broth could also be substituted for a vegetarian stuffing.

I love this dish for its unique flavor, ease of preparation (especially the make ahead parts) and the frugalness of the ingredients. Even if you purchase canned broth, all ingredients bought on sale would bring the total cost of the stuffing to around $1. You really can't beat that for such a great side dish for any meal, but especially a nice turkey dinner.
