For most, a Thanksgiving dinner is all about the turkey but for me it’s all about the stuffing! :) It’s so delicious! Sage sausage stuffing is the kind I grew up eating so it’s my favorite. Plus it really is very simple to make. I usually end up buying the cube stuffing from the store, but I know many make their own, which is great too. We prefer stuffing made in a casserole dish instead of inside the turkey and here’s the recipe.
Sage Sausage Thanksgiving Stuffing
* 1 – 16oz box of stuffing mix
* 1 cup chicken broth
* 3 celery ribs chopped
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 small onion diced
* 1 pound breakfast sausage (such as Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage)
* 2 tsp poultry seasoning
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
* 1 chopped green apple (optional)
Saute onion and celery with butter until soft, and set aside. Brown sausage and drain. Combine stuffing mix, poultry seasoning, sausage, apples, walnuts and the onion and celery mixture into a greased casserole dish. Pour chicken broth over mixture and gently stir. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees covered and another 15 minutes uncovered. Add more broth if it gets too dry.
On this day I forgot the apples but they do pair well with the walnuts and sausage. Adjust recipe to what your family enjoys. I love how the top gets brown and a little crispy. And it smells so great too!
Hooray for stuffing! Break out the elastic waist pants and have some more! ;)
