Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing is a flavorful and beautiful stuffing for your Thanksgiving turkey.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 8-10


  • 1 pan Easy Cornbread
  • 8 slices thick cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup small whole pecans
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves


Bake Easy Cornbread according to directions. Let cool for 15 minutes, then cut into cubes. If you want to use a mix instead, be sure to use two 7-ounce boxes of mix; just one box doesn't make enough.

Cook bacon in large saucepan until crisp; drain and set aside. Drain pan; do not wipe out. Add 2 tablespoons butter, then onions and garlic; cook and stir until light brown, about 8-9 minutes.

Place cornbread cubes in pan; add bacon, onion, garlic, cranberries, pecans, and apple; toss to mix. In small bowl combine 2 tablespoons melted butter, applesauce, broth, salt, pepper, and thyme leaves; drizzle over cornbread mixture and toss to mix.

Stuff into neck and large cavity of turkey; skewer to close. Roast according to directions for stuffed turkey.

Or you can put the stuffing into a greased 2-quart pan. Refrigerate until 1 hour before it's time to eat; then bake at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes until stuffing is hot.

I made this stuffing last Thanksgiving and we're having it again this year. The cornbread and bacon combination is just delicious, and the cranberries add great flavor. It's perfect stuffed into the turkey or baked in a baking dish. Yummy!!
