In the tradition of our favorite cranberry sauce recipe, here's a recipe for Thanksgiving stuffing that's fast, easy, and delicious. We owe it to blogger and photographer Tara Whitney, who's participating in a fun project called Lazy Susan. She and a handful of other bloggers are sharing their favorite seasonal recipes for you to click through as though you're spinning a lazy susan. Visit her blog for photos of the stuffing dish.
1 box of dressing, such as Mrs. Cubbison’s Class Seasoned Dressing (or two 6 ounce bags)
1 pound sage sausage, chopped
2 green apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup yellow onion, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup butter
1 cup pecans
How to Make It:
1. Saute the sausage and the onions until the sausage is browned and the onions are golden.
2. Melt the butter in a large bowl and add the stuffing to the bowl. Stir and coat. Add the celery, apples, and pecans. You may want to crush the pecans first with the butt of a knife, which is easier to do while they're still in the bag.
3. Add the chicken broth to the bowl and stir everything, coating it well. Drain the sausage and onions and add those to the mix.
4. Cook it in a casserole dish or stuff your turkey with it, following the directions on the box.
