This recipe is based on my mother's Thanksgiving stuffing (or dressing as she called it). She didn't have a written recipe for her stuffing, but I think this comes close to hers and I love the simplicity of it. One year I decided to do muffins because it gave more room in my oven to cook other Thanksgiving dishes. Hence, Thanksgiving Stuffing Muffins to the rescue! —Shoal Creek Cook

What You'll Need
  • 5 cups cornbread, crumbled
  • 2 cups sliced white bread, cubed
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten (optional)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon sage
  • 4 cups chicken broth

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in skillet.
  3. Add onion and celery and saute over medium heat until translucent.
  4. Stir in the sage and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.
  5. Mix the crumbled cornbread and white bread in a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add the onion and celery mixture, egg (if you are using), salt and pepper.
  7. Pour broth into the mixture until it is no longer dry, but holds when pressed together.
  8. Spoon mixture into muffin pans and bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned on top.

I have made these twice and everyone loves the spin on stuffing. I tend to use less chicken broth as it seems a little much. You just need enough broth to moisten the mix so it sticks together. I bake them closer to 30 minutes to make them stick together. Definite go to for any holiday.
