It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without stuffing. It’s my favorite side dish and I am thrilled to share this No Frills Sourdough Stuffing with you!
I am a purist when it comes to most things, but especially where stuffing is involved. This stuffing recipe (minus the sourdough part) graced every holiday table at my grandma’s house growing up, and it will always and forever be my favorite.
I am not a fan of fancy stuffing filled with chunks of apple, celery, dried cranberries, nuts, etc. Just let the stuffing BE. This recipe couldn’t be more simple, or delicious.
This dressing is easy to throw together, and cooks for an hour right along with your turkey. Wrapping it in foil packets makes it easy to slide into the oven with everything else!
First take your bread cubes, seasonings, and sausage and throw them all in a large bowl (printable recipe below).
Heat up your broth until just warmed. Add broth, 1 cup at a time, to the stuffing mixture. Keep adding broth and mixing together until you can gently squeeze the stuffing and it barely holds together. Don’t overdue the broth or you will have soggy stuffing . . . no good.
Take stuffing and divide between two large pieces of foil. Shape into squarish loaves and wrap tightly in foil. Slide the loaves into the oven along with your turkey and bake!
- 8-10 c dried sourdough bread cubes
- 1 lb pork sausage (I love Jimmy Dean Natural that I get at Costco)
- 2 heaping Tablespoons poultry seasoning
- 2-3 c chicken bone broth
- large handful dried onion flakes
- Brown sausage.
- Add bread cubes, sausage (with drippings), poultry seasoning, and onion to a large bowl and mix together.
- Warm up your broth (just until warm, it doesn't need to be hot).
- Slowly add broth, 1 cup at a time, to bread mixture.
- When you can gently squeeze the mixture together and it holds, you have added enough broth. Don't overdo it or you will have soggy stuffing.
- Lay out 2 large pieces of foil and divide the stuffing between the two.
- Form stuffing into a squarish loaf and then wrap tightly in foil.
- Add foil packets to the oven (350 degrees) and bake for 1 hour.
- If your oven is a different temperature due to a turkey cooking, adjust your bake time.
