This recipe did not work for me. Poultry stuffing is ideally a kind of savory bread pudding. There is nothing elegant about it in concept. Its function is to sop up, and hopefully add to, flavorful drippings from the bird. Pepperidge Farm basically got it right years ago.
Cornbread, however, is an inferior sopper upper. It is granular, it is sweet, and its down home taste conflicts with the Italian herbs that usually flavor holiday birds. Even augmented here with pork sausage (and, in our variation, with four chopped Granny Smith apples for piquancy and red pepper-eggplant puree for color) it resulted in a stuffing that was mealy or mushy as well as sweet. It was the wrong consistency and the wrong taste.
