Today I discuss a dish that I grew up eating at holiday time; Mom’s Sausage Apple Stuffing!
This is a terrific recipe, it’s super easy to make and does not require any special ingredients aside from sweet Italian sausage.
The combination of those flavorful sausages, apples, and sage end up creating a wonderful stuffing. IMO much better than a boxed stuffing mix!
The fennel in real Italian sausage and the sage play off the sweetness of the apple and overall moistness of the stuffing to create something that is not just a plate filler, but something to behold.
