Chicken Sausage and Herb Stuffing — this is the best Thanksgiving stuffing recipe! Sure, the turkey and gravy are all great too, and yes, even the cranberry sauce. But personally, no Thanksgiving is complete without the homemade stuffing, and this recipe never disappoints! This would be great with a simple brined Turkey and a delicious Cranberry and Pear Sauce. Here are more Thanksgiving Recipes to go with your turkey this year! With Thanksgiving around the corner I thought I would revive this amazing stuffing from the archives. Leftovers should be good for about 3 days.
Sausage Stuffing Bites
With Christmas just around the corner, I have been thinking of some easy side dishes to accommodate all those delicious turkeys that will be served. Back a few years ago I made this lightened up cornbread recipe that is a favorite in our house, my teenage daughter loves it, she said it reminds her of the cornbread they serve at a summer sleep-away camp she goes to. Nothing goes better with turkey than stuffing so I created this cornbread stuffing to sweeten up your typical stuffing recipe and the end result was delicious!
October seemed to fly right on by and now Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Sooo what does one do when one dreams of such things? Well she practices of course. This stuffing is one that I just know will be a part of my holiday menu for years to come, it tasted that incredible! Sourdough bread mixed with sweet sausage combined with apple, sage and fennel…need I go on?? Oh yes, well there is the part where apple cider was involved. I should warn that this dish does take some time to make, due to all the chopping involved, but the end result is completely worth all the hard work! My suggestion would be to make this the night before, cover with foil and pop in the oven the next day. That way you save tons of time in the kitchen and have longer to spend with friends and family.
These are an absolute must for a Friendsgiving celebration. These will win Thanksgiving this year. A lot. I stick with a couple boxes of stove top stuffing mix to make it easier on everything because I know thanksgiving is quite an event for some households. These are even easier because you can make everything up, roll into balls, and store in a container in the fridge early in the morning and heat in the oven for about 20 minutes before serving. In a large mixing bowl throw two boxes of stuffing mix. Add half a cup of egg substitute or egg whites and two cups of chicken broth. Both work I just had only egg beaters on hand this time around.
