Costco Vicky’s Kitchen Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing Review

Cornbread and cranberries are two things that I enjoy, so when I saw Vicky’s Kitchen Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing with Turkey Italian Sausage at Costco, I was intrigued. Not only did the flavors sound delicious, it also seemed like a premium pre-made stuffing – much fancier than the more common boxed stuffings I’ve seen and tried in the past. Can this pre-made stuffing save you some time while elevating your next turkey dinner?

Location in Store

This is located in the refrigerated deli section at Costco and I bought it in Kalispell, Montana. The item number is 907563.

The Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing is tasty with strong flavors. I’m fairly sure the main flavor I was tasting was the fennel seeds and thyme. The chunks of sausage are noticeable visually and by taste. They’re fairly tasty and add a touch of heat to the stuffing. I do think they have made it a tiny bit heavy/greasy though, I like a lighter stuffing.

There are quite a few cranberries in the stuffing and they taste pretty much like what you’d expect – a bit sweet and a bit tart. I thought maybe the fact that the stuffing uses cornbread croutons would give it a unique flavor, but I honestly don’t think I would’ve known it didn’t just use regular croutons if I hadn’t read the package.

I found the stuffing to be somewhat overly bready/soggy, but I did enjoy the crispness of the stuff on top. Next time I might try making it in a bigger but more shallow dish to crisp it up more throughout and make it less soggy.

I wondered if the stuffing might be the same as the stuff in the Vicky’s Kitchen Roast Turkey Breast, but it’s not. The flavor is quite different. They have some different seasonings and the one in the turkey breast uses turkey maple sausage instead of turkey Italian sausage.

The stuffing costs $13.99 USD which isn’t cheap, it’s a lot more than boxed stuffing and I don’t find it that amazing. Stuffing is pretty cheap to make so you’re definitely paying for convenience.

I baked my stuffing in the oven for 20 minutes while covered, then another 15 minutes uncovered. It turned out pretty well; I liked the crispness of the stuffing on top. This is already fully cooked and can be heated in the microwave, in the oven or a combination of microwave and the oven.

The stuffing is fully cooked so I’m just heating it.

The stuffing needs to be kept refrigerated and comes in a vacuum-sealed pouch. The best-before date is just over three weeks from when I purchased it.

This is great if you’re deep-frying a turkey and can’t stuff it or cooking a turkey breast and want some stuffing as a side. I think boxed stuffing doesn’t taste much different and isn’t much harder to make so if you don’t want to make stuffing, maybe save a few dollars and just buy boxed.



One cup of stuffing contains 310 calories, 16 grams of fat, 420 milligrams of sodium, 34 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fiber, nine grams of sugar and nine grams of protein.

That’s a lot of calories and fat but I think a lot of people probably eat a bit less than a cup of stuffing. I eat about half of a cup of stuffing when I have a plate full of other things like turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables etc.

Plus Christmas and Thanksgiving is also a time when calories and fat shouldn’t be the main concern, enjoying time with family and good food is the priority!

The ingredients list is pretty simple with a lot of ingredients you’d use to make stuffing at home. I don’t love that cane sugar is listed because I wouldn’t use that at home but I do appreciate that there’s olive oil instead of palm or canola oil.

The stuffing contains wheat but is dairy-free.

Walk on by!

Obviously, homemade stuffing is the best, but I’m disappointed to say I think I like cheap, boxed stuffing better than this Vicky’s Kitchen Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing.

  1. I have bought thus dressing before, it is spendy,I bought four before Thanksgiving, baked one, for Thanksgiving and another fir Christmas, thus us delicious, the absolute best dressing I,have ate,my boyfriend and I took the turkey giblets , boiled them a couple of hours and took meat off the neck, used the liver and gizzard, added it to the dressing,(which was put into a large bowl added some turkey broth from the giblets, stirred it up, put it in a casserole dish, baked it, it was delicious we will definitely buy this again I rate this 10 stars.
    I highly recommend this product

  2. I’m afraid I don’t agree with this review. I tried this stuffing just this week and was blown away. No, it’s not cheap, and no, it doesn’t look that appealing in the plastic sleeve. However, I think it’s the tastiest stuffing I’ve ever had in my life. I immediately went back to Costco the day after Thanksgiving but they were all sold out. I had hoped to freeze some for Christmas!

  3. This product doesn’t appeal to me at all. While I like some cornbread muffins occasionally, I make stuffing for turkey with butter, bread cubes, onions, celery and a traditional mix of sage, rosemary and thyme. And it gets roasted inside the bird too! I’ve only tried boxed stuffing once. Guess I’m an ol’ fashioned gal lol 😂. Thanks for your review.

  4. I’ve always loved and appreciated your reviews but am disappointed that most of them are for products we can’t get in Canada. Thought maybe it was just a summer vacay but here we are and still mostly Montana Costco reviews.

    • Can’t say I disagree with you Donna. I’ve also noticed that many of the Montana products are geared towards American tastebuds and traditions, which of course makes sense given the location. But, as a result, they’re less interesting and relevant to this Canadian reader.
