To make time for last-minute Thanksgiving essentials, I prep the sausage part of this recipe a day or two ahead of time, then finish the dressing in my slow cooker on the big day. It has stood the test two years running! —Judy Batson, Tampa, Florida

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk sage pork sausage
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken or turkey broth
  • 1 package (12 ounces) seasoned stuffing cubes (8 cups)
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Directions

In a 6-qt. stockpot, cook and crumble sausage with onion and celery over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; drain. Stir in coffee and seasonings; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add broth; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in stuffing cubes. Transfer to a greased 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker.
Cook, covered, on low until heated through and edges are lightly browned, 2-2-1/2 hours, stirring once. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 10 servings.


Test Kitchen Tips
  • Don't be tempted to add more broth. The dressing will moisten as it cooks.
  • Stir once during cooking so the mixture heats evenly.

    "Of course, I will give this a five star rating. It is my own recipe. But, in my original submission, I included 1 cup of raisins to the ingredient list. Not essential, but it sure does add a lot more unique flavor. Enjoy !!"
