  • 6 cups corn bread cubed
  • 5 cups Italian or French bread cubed
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb Italian Sausage
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt, I used Lawry's
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley


  • In a large sauce pan cook and crumble Italian sausage until it is completely cooked and browned. Strain grease from meat and place in a small mixing bowl for later.
  • In the same pan over medium-high heat sauté butter, celery and onions until tender.
  • Remove pan from heat, add cubed cornbread and french bread, whisked egg and all of the remaining dry ingredients. Toss mixture to combine, pour in milk and toss again to combine. Place stuffing in a 2qt casserole dish.
  • Bake at 350 for 1 hour covered with lid. Then bake an additional 30 minutes uncovered.
  • If you desire a crispier top, which I suggest place oven on low broil and broil 5-10 minutes or until top of stuffing is a light golden brown.
