1 Vidalia onion diced

1 bell pepper
2 stalks Celery
8 oz Mushrooms
Black olives (sliced)
1 tsp garlic

Directions:
Directions:
Make the cornbread the day before, break it up into small pieces and let it dry out.
In a large skillet cook the sausage, adding the onion after 5 minutes.
Once the sausage is cooked add round 2 ingredients and cook on med-low heat for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat add round 3 ingredients and cornbread and mix well.
Finally add the liquids, you want it wet enough that it sticks together in a large ball and then stuff it in your turkey.
If you are cooking it as dressing (outside of the bird), you will need to add more liquids because it will not have the extra juices from the turkey and it will become dried out.

Personal Notes:
I donít eat regular stuffing because I really canít handle the taste of the soggy bread (I donít eat bread puddings either, I know itís sad). So my mom and I experimented with cornbread stuffing, which can handle more experimentation with sweeter flavors, like the apples and cranberries. This has replaced stuffing at holidays when I am around.
