If you ask me, what you choose to unceremoniously stuff into the turkey on Thanksgiving is more important than the main event. Not only do I find stuffing to be tastier than turkey, there are also countless ways to prepare this signature side dish—a challenge that basically invites you to throw the rule book out the window.
That being said, selecting a signature stuffing recipe to appropriate as your own can be that much more difficult—especially if you don't have a traditional family recipe to fall back on. Helping amateur chefs share ideas and repurpose delicious recipes since 2010 is none other than Pinterest. We recently spoke with the company about its most saved stuffing pin, and the winning recipe from Cinnamon-Spice & Everything Nice definitely doesn't disappoint. With just shy of 46,000 repins on Pinterest, here's what you should serve alongside your turkey this Thanksgiving:
Homestyle Sausage Stuffing
12-oz. pork breakfast sausage roll
3/4 cup yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
Coarse salt and fresh black pepper
1 package herb seasoned stuffing
2 cans of low-sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp. butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan and dotting the top
Set a large skillet over medium heat and brown the sausage, breaking it apart as it cooks into small crumbles. Once it's cooked, remove to a large mixing bowl. If there's a lot of grease, drain some of it off, leaving about a tablespoon in the pan.
Add the onion and celery, season with salt and pepper, and cook until tender, stirring often. Add it to the bowl with the sausage. Add the stuffing to the bowl and mix it with the sausage, onion, and celery.
Pour the cans of chicken broth over it, and mix well. Drizzle the butter over it, and mix well. Cover the bowl with plastic and let sit five to 10 minutes. You can stuff your turkey with it at this point or bake as directed in the next steps.
