Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing {CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE}


Welcome to the all NEW and IMPROVED
November Challenge - STUFFING

This is my one, my only, my favorite stuffing of all time (I can't wait for my after Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving Dinner to make another batch of this). I am only bummed that Stove Top removed their Cranberry Stuffing from the shelves, but it's still just as good otherwise.
This will be the last month of the CRAZY COOKING CHALLENGE, we hope you have enjoyed it and can join in (it may be too late to make stuffing for today, but you never know, some people are crazy cooks like me and can whip a recipe up in no time at all.) But, for those of you who read about the challenge last month and are prepared to share your STUFFING with us today, we are SO excited to see what you made.
I am also super excited for my Thanksgiving dinner this year, I will be making a Thanksgiving Dinner on the Sunday after, at my house (YUM!). On Thanksgiving day, I will be the wanderer going around from house to house to visit family and friends, while my husband and step-son visit his mom in Oregon and my little guy is on a cruise with his Papa and G'ma. Thanksgiving in our house is always interesting, remember last year my son and I went to Oregon without my husband (and we made these CUTE Thanksgiving suckers), so this year he is going there with out me. Our schedules NEVER match up, I guess it's just the way it goes.

Have you started making your Thanksgiving Menu? I know I have. I have all my recipes picked out and I am beginning the shopping to make sure I get all the necessary things for this delicious meal.

Last month we made Apple Pies , but today it's all about Thanksgiving Stuffing.

Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing
from Food Network Magazine (a long time ago)

1 lb sausage roll (we like Jimmy Dean)
1/2 cup butter
6 celery stalks, finely diced
1 medium onions, finely diced
1 (12 oz) package stuffing (any Stove Top)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp salt
1 to 1-1/2 cans chicken broth (original recipe calls for 2 cans, but I think it's too wet)

Preheat oven to 325. In a large skillet,, crumble and cook sausage until browned. Remove from pan, and in the same skillet melt butter. Saute' celery and onions until softened, about 5 minutes. In large bowl, combine celery, onions, sausage, stuffing, cranberries and salt. Add the broth and stir until well combined. Place into a casserole dish and cover. Bake at 325 for about 1 hour.

  1. Your stuffing looks great, Tina! And I'm impressed that you already have your Thanksgiving Day menu...WTG!

  2. Mmm that looks so yummy. I really love stuffing. Cranberries too! I like your idea of cooking the turkey upside down. Very clever! I also like crispy skin though =)


  3. I'll try that stuffing, it looks good and so does your Thanksgiving menu. I didn't get a chance to do dressing yet, but I'll be back for the sugar cookies! Thanks for the party!

  4. Looks delicious -- I did my menu and shopping list the first of the week. : ) Hopefully I'm ready too!

  5. I am behind....I haven't even picked up a magazine or cookbook with Thanksgiving in mind! This will have to be the weekend to get it together. I need to give a sausage dressing a sounds great, especially with the cranberries.

  6. Oh good lord I can't believe you already have your menu planned! Thank you for hosting and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  7. This looks wonderful! I love the cranberries in your recipe! Sounds great!

  8. I am making this for Thanksgiving this year. I am counting on you! I found the cranberry stuffing. Maybe it is a seasonal thing.

    1. I am making this again this year-third year in a row. My favorite filling.
