  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. Place sausage, mushrooms, celery and onions in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Crumble the sausage and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl combine cooled sausage mixture with crumbled cornbread, chicken broth, poultry seasoning, and sage.
  4. Mix well and transfer to a 9 × 12 inch baking dish. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes or until well set and cooked through.

Tip!

For a denser, less eggy cornbread, go ahead and substitute 3 of the 6 eggs with 1/3 cup of coconut milk. Yowsa! Who knew stuffing could be low-carb?

    looking at Paleo stuffing, at the last, in directions, it talks about cornbread, someone needs to check spelling, but where does the cornbread come from, it is not in ingredients

    somewhere there is an old recipes that does not have the cornbread and it has a whole lot of mistakes you might know I would find it and not see the right one but it is in there somewhere.

    tried it, LOVED it! another winner from Diet Doctor and Maria! Love the texture of the bread too, I cubed iti and let it sit in my oven with the door open, it dried very nicely and had a very similar texture to actual yellow meal corn bread. Will be using this recipe for my family thanksgiving next month!
