To make this sausage stuffing, I dressed up a package of stuffing mix with pork sausage, mushrooms, celery and onion. It impressed my in-laws at a family gathering and has since become a popular side dish with my husband and children. —Jennifer Lynn Cullen, Taylor, Michigan


  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 package (6 ounces) stuffing mix


  1. In a large skillet, cook the sausage, celery, onion and mushrooms over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer; drain. Stir in broth and sage.
  2. Bring to a boil. Stir in stuffing mix. Cover and remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Test Kitchen Tips
  • Dried herbs have their place in plenty of recipes, but stuffing isn’t one of them. Try a combination of fresh parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
  • Homemade croutons will really make your stuffing shine. Any loaf of bread will work, favorites are country loaf, sourdough, brioche or rye loaf. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and toss them into a 300°F oven until they’re dry and crisp, about 45 minutes. Get more tips for best-ever stuffing.
