Sausage Stuffing


This sausage meat stuffing has lots of flavors and is nice and moist. You can change the ingredients to your liking. I quadruple this recipe and cook the extra in my electric roaster; that's how much everyone loves it. If you omit the sausage, use 9 cups bread cubes and add 1 to 2 teaspoons salt. You can also add apples, giblets, oysters, etc.

8 cups


  • 1 pound breakfast sausage

  • ¾ cup melted margarine, or as needed

  • 1 ½ cups finely diced celery

  • ¾ cup chopped onion

  • 8 cups white bread cubes

  • 3 teaspoons poultry seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer sausage to a large bowl.

  2. Pour sausage drippings into a measuring cup. Add enough melted margarine to make 1 cup. Pour into the skillet over medium heat.

  3. Sauté celery and onions in margarine mixture until onion is tender; do not brown. Stir in 1/3 of the bread cubes. Transfer mixture to the large bowl with sausage. Add remaining bread cubes, poultry seasoning, and pepper; mix well.

  4. Stuff bread and sausage mixture into the body and neck cavities of turkey; roast turkey as desired.


To bake extra stuffing: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and butter an appropriately sized dish. Place stuffing mixture in the prepared dish and cover. Place the dish in a pan of hot water and bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and crisp on top, basting occasionally with turkey drippings.
