Fifty-Fifty Cranberry Stuffing Recipe

You get both bread and cornbread in this hearty stuffing. The cranberries give it a hint of sweetness and a nice moist texture. Use as a stuffing for turkey, chicken, or pork or simply bake it as a separate side dish.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 hours

Total Time: 40 hours, 20 minutes


  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 1-1/2 cups (about 3 large stalks) celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3-1/2 cups (about 2 14-ounce cans) chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2-1/2 cups dry bread cubes
  • 2-1/2 cups dry cornbread cubes
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Sweat onions and celery in 1/2 cup of butter until limp. Add chicken broth, sage, thyme, and pepper. Stir to combine. Remove from heat. Fold in bread and cornbread with a large fork. Taste and add salt if necessary. Fold in whole berry cranberry sauce.

Transfer to a greased casserole dish (keeping it loose) and bake, uncovered, 30 to 45 minutes, until top is lightly browned.

To use as a filling for poultry or meat, let stuffing cool to room temperature before continuing with the meat. Be sure to cook the meat right away after stuffing. Do not let it sit.

Yield: 8 servings
