Portuguese Dressing Recipe

Portuguese Dressing Recipe

With beef and smoked sausage, this meaty dressing is different from many other dressing and stuffing recipes. It’s delicious alongside roasted chicken or turkey for holidays or any occasion. I like to use chourico, a Portuguese specialty sausage that’s popular in our area.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound smoked sausage, chopped
