Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 lbs ground sausage
  • 2 bunches celery diced
  • 4 large onions diced
  • 4 cups bread cubes (about 3/4 loaf) day old works best
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup thyme chopped
  • 1/4 cup rosemary chopped
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • NO SALT IF YOU ARE BRINING YOUR TURKEY
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth

Instructions

  • Cut up your bread, lay it on a baking tray and bake it at 200 degrees for about 45 mins or until it just starts to dry out. 
  • Heat a large frying pan to medium heat. Add the oil, chopped celery, and onions and saute until tender. Once they are tender put them into a large bowl.
  • Next cook the sausage in the same pan. If it has lots of fat, make sure to drain it or remove most of it with a turkey baster. When fully cooked, add the sausage to the large bowl as well.
  • Chop the fresh herbs and add them to the bowl.  Add the slightly dried bread cubes and mix it all together.  Cover it and put it in the fridge until you are ready to cook your turkey.
  • When you are ready to cook your turkey, make sure your turkey is prepped. Washed, brined (if you are brining it) and flavored according to the recipe you are following. 
  • Fill a cheesecloth bag with the stuffing and place it inside the turkey before you cook your turkey and cook it with your turkey. 

Notes

Any remaining stuffing can be cooked by itself in a crock pot on low for about 4 hours as your turkey cooks. If you do this, add about 1.5 cups of chicken stock to the crockpot while the stuffing cooks in there.
You can also add the extra stuffing and chicken broth to a casserole dish, cover it, and cook it covered in the oven with the turkey. It will only need about 45 mins to cook so just put it in at the end of the turkey cooking time.
