aka my BIL Ben being all “omg but seriously what the f~ck is in this.”
It’s butter. And sausage. And REALLY good bread, just enough seasoning, and we find that really good stuffing does not have to be really hard to make.
I’ve seen stuffing with TONS of ingredients, sometimes so many that the stuffing becomes a meal in and of itself. I think those recipes are fun and interesting, but for Thanksgiving I’m really into basic recipes so that one thing on the dish isn’t completely overwhelming to the rest of the plate.
Enter, this classic sausage stuffing. It’s got really yummy flavors but just nine ingredients, stuff that is readily available, and can be made well in advance (a few days before your big meal certainly), baked, and reheated right before you eat.
The resulting sausage stuffing is super flavorful, tender with some crispy bits, salty and savory from the sausage and spices.…
