Grandma's Traditional Sausage Herb Stuffing

Grandma's Traditional Sausage Herb Stuffing is loaded with with an amazing blend of herbs with sausage, bacon and veggies.  It really takes me back to that good ole' down home cookin' that I remember from my childhood. This is THE recipe that you want on your table this Thanksgiving.

Growing up in Florida I was exposed to a lot of southern food. Of course my Italian family was from New York originally so we had a lot of what I call Brooklyn Italian dishes in my house. My mom made the best sauces, meatballs and all sorts of American-Italian dishes that we all loved and looked forward to.

Being a busy family of 7, our weeknight dinners were the original semi-homemade style that were doctored up to be better than anything you can imagine. But, when it came to the holidays everything was from scratch. That included my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner: stuffing. My mom always started with fresh sliced bread. Her trick was to toast it in the toaster to make it nice and dry.

That is still my way today, I start with a loaf of bakery bread and cut it up and toast it in the oven. Sourdough is my favorite, but there are so many amazing breads available. Mom never added meat to her stuffing, but I am a huge fan of sausage and bacon. It gives it more dimension and flavor, not to mention I feel better about having a bowl of stuffing for dinner because it has protein and veggies in it. 

We are so excited to be partnering with Jones Dairy Farm again this year to bring you more delicious stuffing recipes. They created the coolest stuffing site I have ever seen! it's packed with unique stuffing recipes, stuffing tips, a fun poll. And of course the RECIPE for this Traditional Herb Stuffing with Jones Bacon and Sausage. You have to check it out! that we had such an incredible response to our Sausage, Cranberry and Apple Stuffing last year I knew we really had to knock this recipe out of the park. While I was brainstorming all sort of stuffing recipes I started wondered what our readers were looking for, so I surveyed our TSRI Insiders Facebook Group this summer as well as our Facebook Fan Page.

The overwhelming response was Cornbread Stuffing and Traditional Herb and Sausage Stuffing. Well, let's say you asked and we answered. We are starting with our traditional stuffing kicked up a notch

It all starts with Jones Dairy Farm amazing all natural pork sausage roll cooked with fresh sage. I love the flavor that fresh herbs bring to this stuffing. The sausage is incredible in this stuffing, but I really couldn't help myself, I had to add some Dry Aged Cherrywood Smoked Bacon and fresh veggies which gave it a fabulous flavor.

You know, I really loved the stuffing we shared with you last year. I mean I ate it for a week, it was so good!

But traditional stuffing is a true comfort food times 10! When stuffing is THIS good, you shouldn't have to wait for a holiday. Let's just call this Sunday stuffing.  Maybe we should start a new trend.

  1. Can this stuffing be made with cornbread in stead of sourdough bread? If so, any revisions?
