“Sausage Stuffing” from a Billet Mom’s Kitchen

Posted on 0 0

As a Billet Mom I have recipes that I call my old favourtes and this is one of them.  I received this recipe years ago from my mother-in-law and she prepared this stuffing for all special occasions.   I had never heard of making stuffing with sausage but as soon as I tried it I was hooked.   She had to make extra as we ate every crumb of it.   If I had my way I would have eaten this and nothing else.  

I don’t need a special occasion as an excuse to make this stuffing.  My Billet Sons love it and I often prepare it for a regular meal when serving roast chicken or turkey.

I can remember my Aunt adding fruit like apples and raisins to her stuffing.  To be honest I never liked it and to me there is only way to make stuffing and that is with sausage.

1 pound breakfast sausage

3/4 cup margarine or butter, melted

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

A Billet Mom’s Tips and Notes

  • Buy a loaf of egg bread, quality sandwich bread or soft Italian or soft French bread and make your own bread cubes.
  • To save time purchase store bought unseasoned stuffing cubes.
  • Spice to taste. You may want to increase the amounts of the thyme, sage and parsley, depending on how much spice you like.  You can also add a small amount of rosemary.  Instead of all the spices just use 3 Tablespoons of poultry seasoning.  You can also use 1 Tablespoon of sage plus 1 teaspoon of thyme.  There are unlimited combinations you can try.
  • Use hot Italian Sausage for a real treat but only if you like it spicy.
  • Double the recipe it goes quickly.
