This Sausage Stuffing recipe is made easy with unseasoned pork sausage, dried bread cubes, sauteed onions, celery and garlic and a perfect blend of fragrant fresh herbs. It comes together quickly and bakes to perfection in about thirty minutes. It is delicious served with roasted turkey, pork or chicken. I love to serve it on holidays with my Cranberry Sauce and Roasted Rosemary Potatoes.

How To Make sausage stuffing with fresh herbs

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    In a large skillet over medium heat brown the sausage. When the sausage is almost browned add the butter, onion and celery; cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme. Cook for 30 seconds stirring constantly.

    Add eggs to a large bowl; beat them lightly. Add dried bread cubes, cooked sausage/vegetable mixture, salt, pepper and chicken broth. Toss to coat and spoon into lightly greased casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes

    NOTES Add about 1/2 cup at a time until lightly moistened. You can always add more but you can not take it back. For an added touch turn the broiler on low for the last 1-2 minutes of cooking to lightly brown the top. Stay close by and monitor as I have always found broilers unpredictable.
