Sausage Stuffing Recipe

Add a sweet and spicy kick to your traditional stuffing recipe by including sausage

Make your best Thanksgiving stuffing yet.

Regardless of whether or not you cook your stuffing inside the turkey, no Thanksgiving dinner is complete without a side of stuffing. Most turkey stuffing consists of some type of bread (cubed cornbread or croutons, for example), aromatic vegetables like onion, carrot, and celery, and a variety of herbs, seasonings, and spices.

Every stuffing recipe is slightly different, though. Some use giblets and others don’t. Some add fruit like apples or cranberries, and some add nuts. And, some stuffing recipes even replace the bread with another starch, like rice. If you’re looking for a good stuffing recipe with a little twist, try this sausage stuffing recipe; it sticks to the basics for its foundation (cubed bread and a medley of aromatic vegetables), but it adds natural sweetness and heat with the addition of Italian sausage.

This stuffing recipe calls for a mix of cubed cornbread and cubed sourdough bread, but if you don’t have either type on hand, feel free to substitute; just about any day-old bread will work.
