A savory stuffing for your Thanksgiving

To me, stuffing is the most important part of the Thanksgiving meal. I can’t imagine celebrating without a plate of this savory comfort food. The smell and the flavor remind me of my Thanksgiving pasts where I would help my mom and grandma make it from scratch. Although the bagged mix is delicious, it doesn't compare to the incredible taste of homemade stuffing. Plus, it doesn't take much longer to prepare!

A savory stuffing for your Thanksgiving

With turkey sausage, hearty, fresh bread and tons of sauteed and caramelized vegetables, this stuffing recipe has all the makings of a delicious meal!
