This turkey stuffing recipe will quickly become your favorite. Oh my….today, in honor of Foodie Friday, I share with you my husband’s generations-old family recipe for stuffing. It’s delicious. It’s amazing. It’s fattening. It makes your turkey taste heavenly. I eat entire meals of this stuffing, because it truly is a meal unto itself. Here, without further ado, is the amazing stuffing recipe.
You will need for this turkey stuffing recipe:
- 1 tube of Jamestown mild pork sausage. Do not buy any other brand; it’s the only one that tastes right in the stuffing.
- 2 boxes of frozen spinach
- 6 pieces of white bread, toasted
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
- One large onion, peeled and diced
- Two tablespoons butter or margarine
Important: Make the turkey stuffing the night before to let the flavors blend. Place it in a bowl (NOT in the turkey yet) tightly covered for at least 12 hours before stuffing the turkey.
- Toast the bread.
- While bread is toasting, cook spinach in the microwave according to package directions. Drain well.
- In a large saucepan, break up the sausage into bits and fry until done.
- When sausage is cooked, drain and remove it from the pan. Place it in a large bowl. Pour off grease, clean the pan, dry it, then place it back on the stove. Use it to cook onion.
- Dice onion fine. Melt the butter or margarine and saute onion until translucent. Add entire mix to sausage.
- Dice the bread fine, add to sausage and onion mixture.
- Drain spinach until as much water as possible is removed. Add to sausage, onion and bread mixture.
- Add eggs and cheese. Stir well.
- Place in bowl, refrigerate.
- When ready, stuff the bird.
