  • 1/2 loaf of sourdough bread, cubed
  • 6 oz baked cornbread, cubed
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 5 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb chorizo sausage


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place cubed sourdough & cornbread on a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes until they’re lightly toasted and golden. Remove and set aside. Keep oven temperature.
  • In the meantime, while the bread is toasting, sauté your veggies (onions to garlic cloves) with the 6 tbsp. of butter in a large skillet. Sauté until veggies are soft and tender, about 10 minutes. Then stir in all the herbs and chicken stock. Let simmer while you cook the sausage in a separate skillet.
  • Brown the chorizo sausage in a separate skillet. Drain and add to the veggie mixture and turn off the heat.
  • Add your toasted bread to a large bowl and carefully pour the chicken stock mixture over the bread. Using a spatula, gently toss the mixture until all is incorporated and not much liquid remain.
  • Pour the contents of the bowl into a large casserole dish. I used a 2 1/2 quart oval casserole dish.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until lightly brown on top.
  • Remove and serve!
  • If you have leftovers, place in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
