Grain Free Sausage and “Cornbread” Dressing

Growing up, Stove Top Stuffing was a staple at my family’s holiday table.  Finding a grain-free adaptation was at the top of my list when we prepared our first real-food Thanksgiving meal a few years ago.  This recipe is truly a winner.  I bake the faux cornbread the night before and leave it out overnight to dry– then prepare the dressing the following day.
