Marianne’s Sausage & Sage Family Stuffing
This is the only stuffing recipe I’ve ever known. My mom used to boil the giblets for several hours to make homemade broth; I tried that for a year or two until I discovered boxed broth! It’s a huge time-saver – but if you want to go old school, giblet broth is the way to go!
*Remember to make this the day before you’re using it, and refrigerate overnight. Never put warm stuffing into a cold turkey!
1 lb bulk sausage
3 medium-sized yellow onions, chopped
1 bunch celery, chopped
1 loaf French bread, cubed and dried
1 container chicken broth
Brown sausage; drain. Return to pan and add onions and celery; cook until celery is tender. (It already smells like Thanksgiving at this point!!)
Transfer mix to a large bowl; add bread crumbs and stir. Add chicken broth in small amounts and mix to moisten to desired consistency. Add poultry seasoning, starting with about a tablespoon, and stir to combine. Add salt to taste.
Refrigerate overnight; stuff turkey immediately before cooking. Bake any extra in a side dish pan rubbed with 1 T butter, for about 40 minutes. Cook turkey at 325°, for ½ hour per pound; remove stuffing to a serving dish! Yum!

From doing your secret research and figuring out her dream ring then shopping around, to planning the moment that she’s been dreaming of her entire life, the anxiety surrounding the “big question” is no joke. But after meticulously planning every detail, finally discovering a diamond you know she’ll love and asking for her hand in marriage from her father, you got down on your knee and did it.
