I wanted to try and make a fun stuffing recipe this year. My family typically enjoys your traditional home style stuffing. However, I wanted to reach outside the box. There are just so many options. Whether it’s the type of bread, the add on ingredients, or even the texture. I decided to do a spin off of the well known apple and sausage stuffing by adding in dried pomegranates for a little tartness.
Loaf of Italian bread made into croutons
1 lb Sweet Turkey Sausage
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 onion, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
6 springs fresh thyme
5 oz package dried pomegranate
Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter casserole dish.
Melt the butter in large skillet and sauté the onions, celery, and sausage breaking up as you cook. Add in salt and pepper. Once the onions are cooked through, add in the thyme, apples, and pomegranate. Cook until the apples are soft and the sausage is thoroughly cooked.
Combine the sausage mixture with croutons in a large bowl. Slowly add turkey stock until everything is combined and well moistened.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the top is crunchy and golden brown.
