Make your best stuffing ever with our recipes that use favorite ingredients, such as sausage, cranberries, nuts, corn bread and fresh herbs.

Cranberry-Apple Corn Bread Stuffing

We mixed corn bread with bread cubes as the base for a dressing studded with apples and dried cranberries. If you make your own corn bread, bake it the day before you make the stuffing; allowing it to dry just a little improves the texture of the stuffing.
