Cornbread stuffing question

beetlebug | Nov 20, 2006 12:12 PM

I've decided to go with a cornbread/sausage/sage/onion stuffing for turkey day. I've always made bread or rice stuffings, so this is new territory for me. I've purused many a recipe and I am going to go with a combination from several sources. I'm buying a loaf of cornbread from a local bakery.

When I make bread stuffings, I usually will let a loaf go stale then I cut it into cubes and stick it into the oven to dry it out some more.

For the cornbread stuffing recipes, some recipes say to cube and dry in the oven. Other recipes skip that step. Also, none of the recipes say to use stale cornbread. Some even have me baking my own (not going to happen) and then drying it out in the oven.

Should I let the cornbread go stale?

Also, which would get the better result?

1) dry it out in the oven
2) skip this step and just make the stuffing
