Cook Time:


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (about 9 ounces) chopped California Prunes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 pound fresh turkey sausage or reduced-fat pork sausage (casings removed), cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1 box (6 ounces) cornbread stuffing mix (about 2 1/4 cups)


In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat until melted. Add Prunes, onion, sausage, pecans, parsley, and herbs; cook and stir 5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add broth and sherry; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in stuffing mix (with seasoning packet) until moistened. Cover; let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Tip: To toast pecans, arrange in even layer on baking sheet. Bake in 350°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
