Sausage Stuffing Recipe


This Easy Sausage Stuffing Recipe is the best! This buttery, savory, flavorful, herb-infused Thanksgiving stuffing (dressing) will become your go-to stuffing recipe! Use it to stuff a turkey or bake it on it's own! 





1 lb. maple pork sausage (or your favorite variety)
½ cup onion diced
½ cup celery diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 TBS butter
1 TBS olive oil
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
1 TBS minced fresh rosemary
1 TBS minced fresh sage leaves
1 TBS minced fresh parsley
12 oz package herb seasoned stuffing
4 cups chicken broth


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 9×13” pan, set aside.
  • Combine stuffing mixture and chicken broth in a large bowl, gently stirring every 2 minutes until the liquid is absorbed by the stuffing. Set aside.
  • Place sausage in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until it just begins to brown (about 5 minutes), breaking it into small pieces as you cook.
  • Once the sausage begins to brown, add olive oil and butter and stir until butter is melted.
  • Add onion, garlic, celery, rosemary, sage leaves, and parsley and cook until veggies are soft and sausage is browned (about 5 minutes).
  • Add salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Add sausage mixture to the bowl with the stuffing and mix until evenly combined. Taste the stuffing and adjust the salt and pepper as desired.
  • At this point, you can use this stuffing to stuff a turkey or bake as described in the next steps:
  • Add stuffing to the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven until the top is set and slightly browned/firm. I personally love a crunchy top, but if you like it soft you can bake it covered with foil.
  • Serve warm!
