  • 10 cups bread cubes*
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1/2 cup onion finely diced
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 2 tbsp parsley dried
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground sage
  • 1 14.5 oz can chicken broth


  • Place the bread crumbs in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, brown the sausage until cooked through.
  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Add onion and celery. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add butter, parsley, salt, thyme and sage. Stir until the butter is completley melted.
  • Add chicken broth.
  • Gently, but quickly pour the sausage mixture over the bread crumbs and toss to coat. The bread will absorb the liquid so it is important to do this both gently and quickly.
  • Transfer to a 9x13 pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The stuffing should be golden brown.


*you can dry your bread out for days in advance on a cooking sheet or you could take a faster approach with the oven. You can find detailed instructions for both methods in the body of this post.
