Cajun Turkey Stuffing

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"This is a rice and sausage stuffing that is always a hit. No one ever tires of eating this as leftovers - it doesn't even need any turkey to go with it to make a nice snack or meal. But stuff a turkey with it, and you have an excellent alternative to traditional bread stuffings. The recipe shown here is the huge Thanksgiving-day-with-tons-of-leftovers version. You can obviously cut it down proportionately for smaller meals. The original recipe, as I received it, called for addition of a couple of cans of shucked oysters, something not to my taste, but you can add this if you wish."

  1. Place the chicken broth, rice, celery, and 1 cup of chopped onion into a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the remaining 1/2 cup of onion into a large skillet along with the garlic, pork sausage, and ground beef. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until the meat is brown and crumbly; pour off excess grease, then stir the meat into the cooked rice along with the thyme, parsley, and oregano. Stir well.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This turned out pretty good but WAY too much rice. I made as written but next time I will cut the rice back by two cups and leave all other measurements the same. I really enjoyed the sausage/be...

Great dressing! I served it beneath blackened salmon & it was a hit with my family. I did make some alterations, however. I used 1/2 the amount of rice & chicken broth & added garlic powder, oni...
