Thanksgiving Stuffing

Whether you prefer to stick with tradition or like to switch things up a bit, this recipe has you covered. We’ve created a classic Thanksgiving stuffing with simple and straightforward holiday flavors, and we’ve also added some flair to another version with added sausage, dried cranberries, and orange. Try both varieties or make a double batch of your favorite, but either way, be sure to use dried bread to prevent the stuffing from getting soggy. For a simple approach, cube the bread and leave it out for 2-3 days on a baking sheet under a dry towel, or you can cube the bread and bake it in a 250°F oven on a baking sheet for 40 minutes to dry it out.

Classic Stuffing 

  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 5 cups cubed dried sourdough bread, cut into ½” cubes
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup chicken broth

Sausage and Cranberry Stuffing

  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • 4 cups cubed dried whole grain bread, cut into ½” cubes
  • 6 oz pre-cooked sausage crumbles
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ⅓ cup chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange zest

Directions

1) In a Suvie pan, stir together 2 tbsp butter, ½ white onion, 1 stalk celery, 1 clove garlic, and season; load pan into the top of your Suvie. In another Suvie pan, stir together 2 tbsp butter, ½ white onion, 1 stalk celery, ⅓ cup dried cranberries, and season; load pan into the bottom of your Suvie. Broil both pans for 15 minutes. 

2) After the broil, transfer the vegetables to two separate large bowls. In the large bowl without cranberries, add 5 cups sourdough bread, 1 tsp poultry mix, 1 egg, ¾ cup broth, and ⅛ tsp kosher salt, and mix together. In the large bowl with cranberries, add 4 cups whole grain bread, 6 oz sausage crumbles, ⅓ cup pecans, 1 tsp rubbed sage, 1 egg, 2 tbsp broth, ⅓ cup orange juice, 1 tbsp orange zest, and ⅛ tsp kosher salt, and mix together. 

3) Return classic stuffing mix to Suvie pan, and load into the top of your Suvie. Return sausage stuffing mix to the Suvie pan, and load pan into the bottom of your Suvie. Input settings and cook now. Cover the sausage and cranberry stuffing with foil 15 minutes into the bake to prevent burning on the top.
