Dressing or Stuffing?

Dressing (or stuffing) is popular among the holidays and a must-have on your dinner table for Thanksgiving.

The difference between dressing and stuffing is simple. The dressing is baked in a dish and stuffed is stuffed into the turkey during baking. We always make our traditional dressing in our family during the Holidays and adding Hatfield Sage Sausage to the mix makes it extra flavorful.

My favorite part about using Hatfield sausage is that it is in hassle-free packaging and the pork is seasoned well. The Country Ground Sausage variety is perfect in a breakfast skillet with eggs and hashbrowns.

Easy to Make Thanksgiving Dressing

The first step to making a delicious sausage dressing is to use stale bread. You can do this by using day-old bread or by toasting your bread. Once it’s toasted, the bread is chopped into cubes.

The importance of this step is because the broth that is added to the dish needs to be soaked up by the dry bread. It makes the stuffing more flavorful and seasons the overall dish well.

Preparing the Sausage Dressing

Once the bread has dried out it is has been toasted, it’s time to saute the ground sausage. Sauteeing the chopped onions and celery at the same time makes the veggies more fragrant and flavorful. Once the sausage is cooked, drain any grease if necessary.

Melt the butter and add the chicken broth. Add the fresh herbs and spices and mix well.

Toss the dried bread cubes into the melted butter and broth mixture. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and then add to the broth. Mix in the sausage and veggies.

In a 9×13 baking dish, add the bread cube mixture and bake the sage sausage dressing for 35-40 minutes.
