    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Put the stuffing cubes in a large bowl and set aside. Butter a 3-quart casserole dish.
    3. 3
      Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and break up with a wooden spoon. Cook until it loses most of its pink color, but not so much that it's dry, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage and pan drippings to the stuffing cubes. Melt the remaining butter in the pan. Add the onion, apple, celery, and salt. Cook until the vegetables get soft, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and parsley and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Pour the vegetable mixture over the stuffing cubes and toss until evenly moistened. Mix in the walnuts and eggs. Loosely pack the dressing in the prepared pan and cook uncovered until the top forms a crust, about 40 minutes. Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of turkey pan drippings or melted butter over the top. Cook until the top is crisp and golden, about 20 minutes more. Set immediately or warm.
    5. 5
      Tips: Put the dressing in the oven during the last hour of cooking the turkey
    6. 6
      Note: To toast nuts, spread them out on a baking sheet and toast in a 350 degree F oven until golden, about 7 minutes.

      I make a couple different stuffings each year for Thanksgiving. I make one in the turkey, one in a pot with the giblets and sometimes another with no onions. I made traditional for in the turkey this year, and made this recipe in a bean pot with the giblets. I also added pumpkin to the recipe, since the my family are big pumpkin fans. Let me tell you! It was sooooo good! It was everyones favorite! I asked everyone which one they would like for Christmas...This one! It was absolutely wonderful! If my family likes it, that means it is a big hit. I will be making it again, for sure!

      This is my go-to stuffing recipe! I've been using it for a couple years, and just never thought to rate it. It is moist and flavorful though. I pretty much follow the recipe, without substitutions.

      I first saw this recipe on Food Network and it is EXCELLENT! Jimmy Dean sausage works well too. I have even made this the night before and warmed it up on Turkey Day. Thanks for posting Chef Itchy Monkey.
