This stuffing recipe is so flavor-packed it's ridiculous! It complements any turkey, pork, or chicken dish!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Italian sausage adds a unique flavor to this stuffing. Combining cornbread with plain bread cubes keeps this stuffing from becoming too soggy. We love the crunch pecans give this side dish. It's an easy stuffing to prepare, yet your guests will think you spent all day making it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Not Yo' Momma's Stuffing

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat Oven to 325 degrees. Saute sausage until brown. Remove from pan and cut into small bites.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter. Cook onion, mushrooms, and celery over medium heat for 3 minutes or until softened.
  3. Transfer sausage and veggies including any butter that is left in the pan to a very large bowl. Add bread cubes, herbs, salt, pepper, pecans, turkey stock, and eggs. Toss well and adjust seasoning. Stuffing should be moist but not soggy. Add more stock if needed.
