The Best Cornbread Stuffing Recipe (2024)

Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

Thanksgiving is coming fast y’all — so I thought it would be fun to make a cornbread stuffing – my family loved this recipe

I will be making it again for Thanksgiving they liked it so much

There are two ways to make this recipe – you can buy cornbread stuffing ( which is what I did) they sell it right next to the other stuffing crouton type things

Or you can make your own cornbread and cut it up into small chunks — I suggest the second method but the other way is good too — either way it is going to be super delicious

One other thing is that you can add more vegetables to the mix – I added tons of celery which is usually found in stuffing but making it again I am going to add about 2 cups of mushrooms – lightly sautéed — I think it will add another level of flavor

What is so great about this recipe is that it has SO many different levels of flavor PLUS it is really easy to make

This is a great side for Thanksgiving – the cost was not too much maybe $6 for the whole dish which was enough to feed 6 hungry people as a side

I seriously cannot wait to make it again

    We made this for our Community Christmas Day dinner and it was a hit! We only made one batch and it was gone quickly, so will probably at least double it, if not triple, for next year! I had never had cornbread stuffing before … it may be my new favorite!

  • Monica F.

    Always looking for cornbread stuffing recipes. Thanks.

  • Kerri

    Is this something that you can make ahead of time?

  • Tammie

    I have a question. Above you say to make the cornbread and cut it I to small pieces. The recipe says dry cornbread mix. I have a box of unmade cornbread. Do I make it and cut it up, or not. Thanks!

    • Jacqui

      I had the same question. I’m assuming you make the cornbread, cut it up, and then follow the recipe, but it isn’t clear.

      • Tammie

        Thanks! Cornbread is in the oven. :-). Also I discovered if I click on the Recipe is HERE link, it says to make cornbread first. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Nikole

    @ Tammie… Yes. You have to cook the corn bread first and allow it to cool.

  • Tonya

    @ Tammie
    Yes, make the corn bread first, then cut into small pieces. 🙂

  • Tammie

    Thanks Everyone! Yep, making cornbread now! I guess if you click on the recipe is HERE link, it says to make cornbread first. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Angie

    I just made this for thanksgiving yesterday and it was a hit!! I loved it and so did the guests! I put it in a bundt pan, so it needed to be cooked longer due to the depth of the pan. I also diced up an apple and mixed it in. This recipe is a keeper for sure!!! Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂

    I created a recipe book for the holidays. I used your recipe from your page, because over the years it’s the best yet! BUT, it’s in my own family use recipe book, I just started a blog, created a post on how to create a book like mine and wanted you to know, give you thanks and credit for a fabulous recipe. I did not post its image on my page because I don’t have permission. Thank you. You’re awesome!

    Does it matter of you use white or yellow cornmix? If not is there one you reccomend?

  • Victoria

    If you make your own cornbread, how much of it do you need to make the stuffing? I make a 9×13 pan.

  • Autumn

    How many does this feed?? I’m trying to figure out if I should double or triple it for a 24 person dinner.

    • Sara

      I would triple

  • Robert

    It would have been nice if your instructions said to make the cornbread first. Waste of time and money.

  • mm

    I’ve made this 5 years in a row!

  • Melinda

    This is the 2nd time I have used this recipe!! It does not disappoint! I added 2 links of chcken apple sausage, threw in some craisins, and had some candied pecans on hand! I used Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free cornbread mix, baked it night before. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
