Sausage Stuffing

This classic stuffing pairs turkey sausage with the tangy sweetness of apples. By using turkey sausage instead of pork, we cut the fat content from 19 grams to 4.

"This stuffing did not please guests at Thanksgiving! That taste wasn't bad but it is not your usual stuffing consistency. Almost the entire pan got tossed. I will search again for a healthy version of stuffing! "

Hands down this is by far the best stuffing I have ever tasted. I couldn't find bulk turkey sausage, so I purchased mild Italian Turkey sausage links and removed the casing before cooking. I would also add to the recipe that for advance preparation, the bread can be cut and toasted two days in advance.


Great reciepe, though I will be adding mushrooms to it will a mixture of mixed nuts and dried fruit, cranberries,cherries,ginger,mango and pineapple. I will be doing it as a dressing not a stuffing, It will cook in the oven as the turkey will be fried in peanut oil.
The turkey was injected with a mixture of bar-b-que sause an chipoteo hot sause to the inside meat area, Under the skin was a dry rub with butter and cajum seasoning. All this will sit over nite. The next day at 11am let the games begin.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.


I think adding chicken or turkey sausage to stuffing is a great way to boost flavor without adding much extra salt or having the fat of the turkey drippings. I am inspired and working on my own concoction to encourage a real food, real easy Thanksgiving on my own site too: Thank you for spreading the word of "eating well," If we all try to influence where we can we can better balance against the marketing power of the processed food industry.


Overall, this wasn't bad. I had to use gluten free bread since I'm a celiac and I think that probably contributed to a lot of the issues I had with this. I will try a different kind of bread next time around. I liked the apples but figured my husband wouldn't. He generally doesn't approve of fruit in dishes like this, but he actually really like this and he especially loved the sausage. I will have to mess with the spices though, it seemed like it was lacking in something, but that's more of a personal preference.
