Homemade Traditional Stuffing Recipe

This traditional stuffing recipe that is loaded with mushrooms and  sausage has been served up at my holiday dinner table for years.

Turkey stuffing was popularized in the early days of Thanksgiving as it is written in many 16th century Boston area documents.


– bread – unsalted butter – loose pork sausage – yellow onions – cremini mushrooms – celery stalks

Preheat the oven to 300°. Spread out the cubed bread on a cookie sheet tray lined with parchment paper  and bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until crisp and firm. Set  aside.

While  the bread is baking add a ½ stick of butter to a large frying pan or  rondeau over medium-high heat and cook the sausage until broken up,  lightly browned, and cooked throughout.

Remove the sausage from the pan or pot and add the remaining ½ stick of butter. Add in the onions and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Then add in the mushrooms and cook for a further 8-10 minutes while occasionally stirring. Place in the celery and garlic and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the cooked vegetables, sausage, and baked cubed bread to a very large bowl. Next, add in the herbs, salt, pepper, and chicken stock and mix gently until combined.
