Traditional Holiday Stuffing

Sausage and sage add a gourmet taste to this stuffing. It's perfect for large family gatherings, but you can also save some for later. —Lorraine Brauckhoff, Zolfo Springs, Florida

    24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) reduced-fat bulk pork sausage or breakfast turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 4 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 loaves (16 ounces each) day-old white bread, cubed
  • 1 loaf (16 ounces) day-old whole wheat bread, cubed
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large nonstick skillet cook sausage, celery and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Remove from heat; stir in mayonnaise, mustard, sage and poultry seasoning.
  • Place bread cubes in a large bowl; add sausage mixture and toss. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and broth; pour over bread cubes and stir gently to combine. Transfer to two 3-qt. baking dishes coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until lightly browned and a thermometer reads 165° 12-18 minutes longer. If desired, top with chopped parsley.
Editor's Note: If using this recipe to stuff poultry, replace the eggs with 3/4 cup egg substitute. Bake until a thermometer inserted in center of stuffing reads 165° and thermometer inserted in poultry thigh reads 180°. Allow 3/4 cup stuffing per pound of turkey. Bake remaining stuffing as directed in recipe.

    Its healthy recipes like this that give healthy recipes a bad name. Dry, bland and tasteless.

    I would definitely make this recipe again, although I'd leave out the sausage. My family does not like sausage in their thanksgiving stuffing.
