Sausage Sourdough Stuffing Recipe
Sourdough’s tangy chewiness gives this stuffing texture, while sausage makes it hearty and mushrooms and cranberries lend an earthy sweetness. —Jennifer Brazell, Lewiston, Idaho
- 1 pound bulk pork sausage
- 1 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
- 1 large sweet onion, chopped
- 2 celery ribs, chopped
