Cornbread stuffing

Gordon Ramsay's Holiday Stuffing Recipe

Gordon Ramsay's holiday stuffing is a delicious combination of sausage and cornbread dressing. The sausage stuffing is cooked with herbal flavors of thyme and sage and is spiced up with salt-pepper seasoning. The crispy cornbread dressing with chestnuts add some extra flavor and crunch to the stuffing.

Serving Dish


  • 1 Yellow Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 ounce Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Sage (finely chopped)
  • 1.5 pounds Ground Sausage
  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 8 ounce Cornbread (torn in bite-sized chunks)
  • 1/2 cup Chestnuts
  • 1 teaspoon All Purpose Flour
  • 5 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Kosher Salt (to taste)
  • Freshly Ground White Pepper (to taste)


  • Take a small saute pan and set it over medium heat. Add butter to it and toss in onions. Cook them for about 5 minutes and keep them aside to rest.
  • Add breadcrumbs, spices, thyme, sage, flour, and baking powder to the same pan. Mix them and add a half cup of boiling water to the pan. Let it stand for about 5 minutes.
  • Add sausage to the pan and stir thoroughly. Divide this stuffing into 9 small portions and make small balls of these portions. Leave them to rest in the greased roasting dish (or baking dish). Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven (220 C) to 145 C.
  • While the stuffing is in the oven, add dried cranberries to a bowl containing hot water (boiling). Let it sit for 4 to 5 minutes. Drain cranberries.
  • Add butter to a large skillet over medium heat and add cornbread chunks to it. Do not move them and let them cook for about 1 to 2 minutes until they're crispy and brown. Add more butter (if the skillet looks dry), chestnuts, and cranberries. Toss them to combine.
  • Remove the stuffing from the baking dish (or roasting dish) and let it cool for about 5 minutes. Top it with cornbread dressing, garnish with sage leaves, and serve.
