How to make it

  • Read through this entire recipe before starting.
  • Break apart the stale French bread into small pieces. (Or if you’d prefer, use 1 to 2 boxes of Mrs. Cubbison’s stuffing mix.)
  • In a large frying pan, sauté ½ lb of bulk pork sausage and break into small pieces.
  • Remove sausage from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add 2 ½ -3 cups diced celery, 1 leek,
  • 2 diced onions and 1 stick of butter to sausage drippings.
  • Saute veggies until tender.
  • Add fresh sage, thyme and apples, parsley and 1 cup drained raisins that have been soaked several hours in white wine.
  • Add salt and pepper.
  • Put sausage back in pan and add chicken broth.
  • Add bread pieces.
  • Mix well and refrigerate.
  • Right before putting the turkey in the oven, heat up dressing
  • and moisten stuffing with hot turkey stock or chicken broth, stock meat or giblets.
  • Stuff bird lightly and pop in oven. Extra stuffing now becomes “dressing”
  • and can be covered and baked in the oven once you’ve removed the turkey. Dressing should be more moist than the “stuffing.”
  • Hope I didn’t confuse you!

    Sounds wonderful, Conner and I love your back story, too. I did the chestnut thng one year and like your peeps, mine said it was good...but couldn't tell the chestnuts made it any better than normal. So, I scratched them, too - that's a lot of work for no extra bang.

    I like your flavors and the wine-soaked raisins. I'll try it this way and with a 50-50 cornbread mix. You know us Southerners, we have to add cornbread to our dressings/stuffings. I think it's a law down here or somethin'. Great post - thanks so much. :) Vickie
