Mile High Mornings Recipe: Cornbread pecan dressing

Here's one for the Thanksgiving table from 9NEWS viewer Jeri Paull, who shares her favorite dressing recipe.

DENVER — On weekends during the month of November, Mile High Mornings is sharing recipes for your Thanksgiving table.

Thanks to 9NEWS viewer Jeri Paull for sharing her favorite dressing recipe.

She says that she bakes it for 20 minutes in the oven after pouring chicken broth over it to keep it from drying out. This recipe is from Ann Hodgman’s “Beat This: cookbook."


  • 1 lb Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 Cup Finely Chopped Onions
  • ½ lb Mushrooms, Very Finely Chipped
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • ½ Tsp Dried Sage
  • ¼ lb Chicken Livers, Cut into Very Small Pieces
  • 2 Eggs, Beaten
  • 2 Cups of Crumbled Cornbread
  • 1 Cup of Pecans, Toasted at 350 Degrees Until Crisp, Then Chopped 


  1. Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until well-browned, breaking it up with your spoon as you stir.
  2. With a slotted spoon, put the sausage in a bowl and drain all but 2 tablespoons of fat.
  3. Add the onions to the skillet and cook until they begin to wilt. Add the mushrooms, garlic, thyme and sage.
  4. Cook until the mushrooms give up their liquid and continue until the liquid evaporates.
  5. Add the chicken liver and cook until the liver turns pink.
  6. Add the sausage.
  7. Take the skillet off the heat and then add the eggs, cornbread crumbs and pecans, in that order.
  8. Store in the fridge until you’re ready to cook the turkey.
