Thanksgiving Side Dishes

If you have been following my hubs about thanksgiving meal you will notice that I have talk about how to get that perfect turkey and making a great tasting basic gravy, so it's time to take it to thanksgiving side dishes and the side dish were talking about today is the stuffing ....some people call it dressing but I call it stuffing.

When i make my stuffing for Thanksgiving Day Dinner I make it two ways I make it to go in side of the turkey then I make it fun for the kids and the way I do that is taking the leftover stuffing that dose not fit into the turkey inside a muffin pan ....just to let you know I always make more than I need for the turkey so I can use the muffin pan because I really like it myself.

Making stuffing is really fun to me I like to create different types of flavors when I'm making my stuffing some people like corn bread stuffing, herb stuffing and even a mushroom stuffing me I like to add meat to my stuffing and the meat I like is sage sausage that mixed up with you favorite kind of stuffing bread mix or cornbread type mixes but what i'm going to do is share the way I like to prepare it for my family easy simple and basic.


4 tablespoons of butter ''melted''

3 cups of chicken stock

2 bags of cornbread stuffing mix

16 oz package of sage sausage

1/2 cup of finely chopped yellow onions

1/3 cup of finely chopped celery

1/2 teaspoon of sage powder

1 medium egg ''beaten''


Pre-heat your oven on 350 degrees....grease the muffin tin with some of the melted butter then set on the side.

In a large skillet on a medium - high heat saute the sage sausage crumble it into the pan so that the sausage will be broken up when the sausage start frying reduce heat a little when the sausage is done remove it from the pan and let it rest on a paper napkin so the grease can drain off the meat ....Mean while using the same pan add you celery first let saute for a few minutes then add your onions when the onions and celery are ready remove and set on the side for later use.

While everything is resting get out a large pot add your chicken stock bring the stock to a boil then reduce to a simmer ....while the stock is simmering get a large bowl add your stuffing mix, sage sausage, celery and onion mix well Now add the melted butter and the sage powder mixin well along with your beaten egg and stock add your sock a little bit at a time so it can be moist and not to wet make sure that you fold in all the ingredients in well then set on the side

Spoon about 1/3 cup of the mixture into each muffin cup and bake until hot throughout and golden brown, about 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and serve.

This recipe is really super simple to put together and its the wy I like it the best thing about making food is that you can make it anyway you want it to be so try and enjoy it for yourself......Happy Birthday.

      When I make stuffing, I still use my mother's recipe, only without the turkey. Chunks of tempeh go into the stuffing, along with the chopped onions, celery, green pepper, and seasonings (lots of sage).
