Fabulous Cornbread and Gorgonzola Dressing

I came across this recipe on the internets and had to give it a try. It's a bit of work but the result is worth it--I'll probably do it again for a holiday like Thanksgiving.

Served it up with a big salad (lettuce from the garden) and two small New York steaks.

These are the ingredients from left to right: cubed french baguette, gorgonzola cheese, soaked porcini mushrooms (with the remaining liquid in the metal bowl), cornbread, and the leek, garlic, shallot, sage mixture before sautéing.
