Sausage Stuffing

A very traditional British recipe that I grew up with and can’t live without…ok, well I can’t live without it at the holidays. It’s a delicious and very simple stuffing that pairs perfectly with your turkey. Be prepared to drool. = )

Read on for the recipe and photos…


NOTE: Serves 12! You can either stuff your turkey with it or bake it separately, which is what I do.

1 lb breakfast sausage (I like Jimmy Dean original breakfast sausage)

3/4 cup finely diced onion

1 1/2 cups chopped celery

3/4 cup margarine, melted

8 cups soft bread cubes

3 tsp poultry seasoning – I use oregano, thyme, salt and pepper


  • Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown.
  • Remove the sausage from the skillet and let drain on paper towels.
  • Combine the melted margarine with the sausage drippings until there is 1 cup of liquid in the skillet.

  • Saute onions and celery in the skillet until the onion is tender but not browned.
  • Stir in about 1/3 of the bread cubes.
  • Pour onion mixture into a large bowl and stir in the remaining bread crumbs, the sausage, and the seasonings.
  • Mix well and bake in a baking dish (glass or other) for about the last 40 minutes that the turkey is baking (at 325F) and then another 20 minutes to brown (this can be done at a higher temperature).

Be prepared to become addicted!
