I created this savory stuffing for our holiday meals. It is lightly seasoned and makes a perfect accompaniment to chicken, fish, pork, or beef. We enjoyed this stuffing very much, and we hope your family will like it, too. Enjoy! I forgot to mention that it is also gluten free. Yes, it is. However wheat eaters will never know it! :) Happy Holidays, my Friends! ~Bonnie

How To Make bonnie's savory sausage stuffing

  • 1
    To make things go faster, prep the breads the night before. Cut the Glutino English Muffins into one inch cubes, and put them on a flat pan in a 300 degree oven. Slowly dry and toast the bread until it is a lovely golden brown. Transfer the bread cubes to a large bowl. Do the same with the corn bread. I bake the bread cubes in separate pans because the corn bread browns faster than the English muffins.
  • 2
    Chop the vegetables and apples. This can all be done the day before.
  • 3
    Add 3 tablespoons olive oil to a large skillet. Break apart the Jimmy Dean's sausage with a fork, and add the seasonings and cook it about five minutes.
  • 4
    Add the vegetables and apples to the sausage and continue cooking until the sausage is cooked through.
  • 5
    Pour the meat mixture on top of the toasted breads in the mixing bowl.
  • 6
    Mix butter into the 2 ½ cups of broth and stir to blend and pour over everything in the mixing bowl. Gently mix to combine with a spatula. It will look a little wet, that is okay. Just make sure the bread is covered.
  • 7
    Pour into a 9 X 13 greased baking dish. Cover with foil and Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove foil to brown top, about 10 more minutes. Enjoy!
