Andouille Cornbread Dressing

Andouille Cornbread Dressing
Yields: 10-12 Servings
  • 8 cups (1-inch) cubed cornbread
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (12-ounce) package andouille sausage, chopped
  • 1½ cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1½ cups chopped celery
  • 1½ cups chopped green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup minced garlic
  • ¾ cup giardiniera, drained and roughly chopped
  • 2¼ teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1¼ cups chicken broth
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place cornbread on prepared pan. Toast until lightly browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a 12-inch enamel-coated cast-iron braiser, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add andouille; cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove sausage using a slotted spoon, and let drain on paper towels.
  4. Add onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic to braiser; sauté until vegetables are softened, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in giardiniera, Creole seasoning, thyme, sage, and pepper.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together broth and eggs. Add cornbread, andouille, and vegetable mixture, stirring gently until liquid is absorbed. Spoon mixture back into braiser, and drizzle with melted butter.
  6. Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
