Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipe

Celebrity Chef Anne Burrell knows how to do Thanksgiving and she’s sharing her recipe for the best side dish: 


Stuffing is always a great way to get everyone involved. I mean even I was a little girl; it was a way that I could help!

First thing, here’s the ingredient list!

✔ Extra-virgin olive oil ✔ 1 large onion, small dice ✔ 3 ribs celery, small dice ✔ Kosher salt ✔ 1 pound spicy sausage, casing        removed, broken into bite-size         chunks ✔ 3 cloves garlic, smashed and         finely diced ✔ 3/4 cup coarsely chopped       walnuts ✔ 10 sage leaves, finely chopped ✔ 3 sprigs rosemary, leaves finely       chopped ✔ 10 cups stale cornbread, cut into        1-inch cubes ✔ 2 cups dried cranberries ✔ 3 to 4 cups chicken stock

(take a screenshot!)

After preheating the over to 350, sauté onions & celery over medium heat. Salt and cook until the veggies become soft.

Then, add the sausage and cook until brown. You’ll want to stir in garlic here, and sauté for another minute or so.

Next, add the walnuts, sage and rosemary and cook for another minute, then remove from heat.

In terms of the cornbread, Anne recommends doing what’s right for you. “You can either make the cornbread from scratch or buy it.”

In a large bowl mix together the cornbread, cranberries, and the sausage mixture. Add chicken stock and knead with your hands until the bread is very moist.

Transfer to an ovenproof dish and bake the stuffing until it is hot all the way through and is crusty on top, about 30 to 35 minutes.

It's just delicious because you get the savory sausages and then you get just a little sort of nod to sweetness with the cornbread.
