Ingredients You Need to Make This Easy Homemade Sausage Stuffing Recipe:
- Unseasoned stuffing cubes
- Yellow onion, finely diced
- Celery stalks, finely diced
- Granny Smith apples, finely diced
- Mushrooms, sliced
- Dried parsley
- Ground pepper
- Poultry seasoning
- Spicy Italian sausage, without casings
- Chicken stock
How To Make This Easy Homemade Sausage Stuffing Recipe:
Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Then place the unseasoned stuffing cubes into a large mixing bowl and set it aside.
Now in a large non-stick skillet on the stovetop, turn on medium heat, add the butter into the skillet and let it melt.
Once the butter is melted add in the finely diced onion, celery, apples, mushrooms, parsley, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning, letting it saute together for 10 minutes.
After the vegetables have become tender dump all the ingredients on top of the unseasoned stuffing cubes in the bowl.
Now cook the Italian sausage in the same skillet. Cook it until it is browned over medium heat for about 10 minutes or so, chopping the meat up with the spatula as it cooks.
Use a colander to drain the grease from the meat and then add the meat to the bowl with the sauteed veggies and mix it all together.
Grab the chicken stock and pour it over top of the ingredients and stir it into the vegetable mixture until all the ingredients are moist.
Then spread the mixture into a 9×13-inch pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Once the stuffing is spread out in the pan, place it in the oven and let it bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top has slightly browned on top and then serve it warm and enjoy!

Can You Make Sausage Stuffing Ahead of Time?
You can prepare the sausage stuffing ahead of time. Just be sure to pop it in the fridge or freezer right after combining everything to prevent bacteria from growing.
If you are looking to make it a week or so ahead I would definitely freeze it to make sure it is good for when you need it. Freeze It gives you great instructions on how to freeze stuffing properly.
Is Stuffing Better With or Without Eggs?
Stuffing is great with and without eggs. Since eggs are a combining agent, it does tend to hold the stuffing together really well, however it is definitely not important to have a deliciously flavored stuffing recipe.
What Makes Stuffing Taste Better?
Fruit and vegetables are big powerhouses for stuffing. When you saute them it brings out their flavor and it melds into the stuffing cubes. And of course, spices are also great ways to make stuffing taste amazing.
With those two things together you can not go wrong! You can also add dried fruit too if you have it on hand.
