Servings 12 -pound turkey stuffing Calories 325.1

This stuffing has lots of flavor and is nice and moist. You can also change the ingredients to your liking. I quadruple this recipe and make the extra in my electric roaster, that’s how much everyone loves it. This recipe is very adaptable, you can change it around anyway you like and it will still be delicious!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • ¾ cup margarine, melted
  • ¾ cup finely diced onion
  • 1 ½ cups chopped celery
  • 8 cups soft bread cubes, divided
  • 3 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place sausage in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown, about 10 minutes. Remove sausage from the skillet and let drain on paper towels. Combine melted margarine with the sausage drippings until there is 1 cup of drippings and margarine combined.
  2. 2 Cook and stir onion and celery in the margarine-dripping mixture in the same skillet over medium heat until onion is tender but not browned, about 10 minutes . Stir in about 1/3 of the bread cubes. Pour onion mixture into a large bowl and stir in remaining bread cubes, sausage, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Watch your hands, it's hot. Mix well. This stuffing is ready for baking.

This needed a little more moisture I added in a little chicken broth (I didn't measure I just added until it looked right). This was a nice basic - Read more ...
  2. Pretty good recipe. Does need a little chicken stock as another stated and you can add quite a few different things to personalize the recipe: bacon, apples, different spice, etc. A couple of people mentioned the lack of cooking instructions and the increased poultry spice. What they didn't notice is this recipe is for turkey - Read more ...
  3. This is similar to my mother's traditional recipe,with a few critical ommissions. I am not good with measurements... do it by taste... so a good handful of chopped fresh parsley and a cup or so of chopped walnuts really complement. Also, I use sage sausage, and rather than poultry seasoning, (we already have the parsley)plenty - Read more ...
  4. This is not a bad recipe overall, but let me tell you that it needs some help. The recipe does not indicate an oven temperature or baking time. Obviously, this is needed. Since the meat is already cooked, I'd suggest baking 30 minutes in a covered casserole dish at 325 degrees to start, but keep - Read more ...
  5. This recipe did not have the oven temp or cooking time?????
  6. I used this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner. I made a single batch for stuffing the turkey and a double batch in a roaster. My family loves stuffing. The batch from the turkey was edible but the roaster batch was terrible. There is way too much poultry seasoning. We could not even eat it. I ended - Read more ...
