Best-Ever Sage Sausage, Apple and Squash Stuffing

Best-Ever Sage Sausage, Apple and Squash Stuffing

This crisp, soft sausage and apple stuffing is one of our all-time favorite comfort foods, and a must for your Thanksgiving feast.  What is there to say about this recipe except, it is one of the best comfort foods ever!   It’s one of the few savory dishes you can lick the spoon for.

This delicious side dish is remarkably simple and produces a warm and fluffy stuffing with a perfectly crisp yet soft texture.  The sweetness from the apples is nicely complimented by salty, spiced Italian sausage. Combined with the celery, onion and sage, the whole dish makes for a mouthwatering aroma, and an even better taste!

You can make this stuffing plenty beyond Thanksgiving, since it would be delicious with any roasted meat or poultry. If not for the holidays, you work this mouthwatering, easy stuffing into one of your special weekday dinners and get to enjoy it for yourself!
