The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Secret Recipe Revealed - Stuffing

Secret Recipe Revealed - Stuffing

Secret Recipe Revealed - Stuffing

Stuffing is an absolutely personal preference.  I hear of families getting into battles over "the right kind of stuffing."  I don't know how this stuffing would hold up in another family's contest, but this recipe has been handed down through my wife's mother's side for years, and it is a big hit (although my brother picks out the raisins).

Old Fashioned StuffingI like my bread plain!

10 cups bread cubed 

1 lb. sausage

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup apples, sliced

1 cup raisins

1 Tbsp. Poultry Seasoning

2 tsp. salt

1 cup water (add a bit more as necessary while cooking)

Cook sausage, onions, and apples together.  Do not drain off fat.  Add bread and remaining ingredients.  Stir well.  Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally or put in casserole and bake at 325 for one hour, covered.  You may need to add a bit of water--this is supposed to be a moist stuffing--not dry.

Hmm.... sounds like a great receipe.  I like the idea of the apples, but would have to agree with your brother the raisins are out.  I wonder if adding chicken broth instead of water, might even add more flavor.

Chris, sounds great raisins and all

I bet the flavor of the sausage runs right threw it.

Thanks for sharing

Enjoy the day

Chris, this recipe looks much like mine, only I have not added apples.   I will need to try again with apples soon.

Hi Susan - I am not a big fan of raisins, but in this stuffing, they just belong!  : )

Hi Don - The sausage does add a bit of flavor.  : )

Everything but the raisins. Sounds like a delicious treat all by itself. Hmmm.
