Spicy Italian Sausage And Apple Stuffing

Stuffing or technically, dressing because it doesn't go in the bird, is one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides! Now, my tastes have matured as I have grown and so have my recipes! I love this one because it doesn't use as much bread and it has a great kick to it from the Italian sausage and bell peppers!

I like to start off by prepping my ingredients. Dice my apples, peppers and green onions, brown my spicy Italian sausage, measure out my chicken broth and put my bread cubes in a bowl. (I use a pre-seasoned, pre-cubed, but you can make your own as well!)

I love serving this dish with refreshing peach iced tea. If you're dealing with relatives and need something a little stronger, I recommend a delicious margarita!

Spicy Italian Sausage And Apple Stuffing Ingredients

Once your prep work is done, you can build your stuffing. It's all about layering the ingredients…

Just kidding, I just toss 'em in one at a time and then, gently toss it as you add the chicken broth.

Spicy Italian Sausage And Apple Stuffing Directions

You want the stuffing to be moist, but not drenched. You want the bread and other ingredients to soak up all of the broth, so don't pour it all in at once. I like to do it in thirds, but it takes about 2 cups of broth for this recipe.

This recipe makes about 8 servings, you can bake it in one pan or, like I did, in mini loaf pans! However you bake it, it takes about an hour in a 400 degree oven. Just make sure it is heated through and the top is nice and crispy. (That is my husband's favorite part!)

Bake the Spicy Italian Sausage and Apple Stuffing in a 400 degree oven for an hour or until heated through and crispy on the top!
