Pecan Sausage Stuffing Recipe

Apple and sausage keep every bite of this stuffing moist and delicious, while toasted pecans add a bit of crunch. Fresh herbs are a nice touch, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:21 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Pork Sausage Roll
  • 3 cups chopped onions
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cubed and toasted
  • 3 medium apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans, toasted

  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 2 to 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. In the same skillet, saute onions and celery in butter until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer.
  • 2. Add the bread cubes, apples, pecans, sage, thyme, salt, pepper and onion mixture to the sausage. Stir in enough broth to reach desired moistness. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish (dish will be full). Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 21 servings (3/4 cup each).

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: This recipe makes enough stuffing to stuff a 21-pound turkey. Bake until a meat thermometer reads 180° for turkey and 165° for stuffing.
