Sage, Sausage and Apple Dressing

Share

Sage, Sausage and Apple Dressing is a really nice addition to your Thanksgiving table. Don’t be fooled by the title of this recipe, it really is more like a stuffing than a dressing but I can guarantee it’s delicious and your guests will love it! My top tip is to cook the dressing in the oven during the last hour of cooking the turkey.

I start by cooking sausage and adding it and the pan drippings to the stuffing cubes. Next I fry up onion, apple, and celery in butter until the vegetables soften before adding broth and parsley and bringing it to a boil. Pour the vegetable mixture over the sausage and stuffing cubes and mix until evenly moistened. Mix in walnuts and eggs and bake in the oven until a crust forms on top. After 40 minutes, drizzle 2 tablespoons of turkey pan drippings or melted butter over the top and continue to cook until the top is crisp and golden.
