Forget the turkey! Stuffing is arguably the most coveted dish on your Thanksgiving menu. So it’s important to have a tried and tested recipe that won’t disappoint. This classic sausage and herb stuffing combines the savory flavors of the holiday with a little bit of spice and all of the goodness of fresh herbs. There’s no doubt you’ll be thanking us for this one.
Preheat oven to 350°(F). In a large bowl, mix chicken stock with stuffing mix and set aside.
Sauté sausage, onion, garlic, celery, parsley, poultry herbs, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes until the sausage and vegetables are fully cooked. Add butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat and mix in the beaten egg. Combine the cooked sausage mix and stuffing. Pour into a greased, 9 by 12-inch baking dish.
Bake for 30 minutes until the center is hot (or until an instant read thermometer reads 150 degrees F). Garnish with chopped parsley and enjoy!
One big plus about this recipe, the ingredients are simple and it’s not a killer to make. You can even cook it ahead of time and reheat it in the oven on the big day.
Fresh herbs really make all the difference here. Don’t skimp and use dried. It’s just not the same.
Presentation is everything! Use extra chopped parsley (there’s always extra) to sprinkle on top of your stuffing. Enjoy!
