Italian sausage spices up this delicious thanksgiving dressing recipe. Even though this recipe can be used to stuff a turkey (which would make it a sausage stuffing, of course), it is best cooked separately.

Makes 8 Servings of Savory Sausage Dressing or Stuffing

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1/2 pound Italian bulk sausage
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1/2 pound white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 cups plain dry bread cubes or unseasoned stuffing croutons


In a large pan, over medium heat, brown the sausage, breaking it in small pieces as it cooks. Drain off the grease. Add butter, onion, celery, mushrooms, and saute for about 5 minutes or until the onions soften. Stir in broth, herbs, salt and pepper, and bring to a simmer.

Add bread cubes to a large mixing bowl and pour over the hot broth mixture; mix well. Transfer to a buttered two-quart baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 minutes, or until top is golden-brown.
