What you need to make Sausage Stuffing

It’s easy to doctor up boxed stuffing mix with just a few ingredients:

Sausage: I used Italian sausage but you could also use any bulk pork sausage you like.

Fresh Vegetables: adding some diced onion, celery and garlic brightens up the boxed stuffing mix and makes it look and taste more homemade.

Herbs: I added Italian seasoning to the stuffing to add to the flavor.

Ingredients on the box: chicken stock and butter are added to make the stuffing, like the box calls for.

This really is a quick and easy sausage dressing that no one will know isn’t homemade.

Here’s how to make sausage stuffing: simply brown the sausage with the onion, celery, and garlic and then add the herbs, stock, butter and stuffing mix and let it fluff. It’s that easy!

Serving Suggestions

We love stuffing all year long, but it wouldn’t be a Thanksgiving dinner without it! This year we are going to have a smaller dinner, but at least having familiar recipes will make it seem more normal.

The items I got from Walmart through Ibotta were perfect for our small family to enjoy with leftovers the next day. We made sausage stuffing and served it with gravy, turkey breast, mashed potatoes, and green beans sprinkled with crispy onions. It was such a great meal!

We loved eating the stuffing traditionally but I also suggest mixing it with mashed potatoes and drowning it in gravy – SO GOOD.
