Try Savory Stuffing for Thanksgiving

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.
I was listening to the radio yesterday and they were discussing how mashed potatoes rank at the top of American's favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. Maybe I'm in the minority, but for me it has always been stuffing. Don't get me wrong. I love a nice mountain of mashed potatoes with a big well of gravy in the center, but that's something that we eat frequently year round here. Stuffing has always been reserved for major holidays and maybe a Sunday dinner here and there throughout the year, so it has always been #1 on my list during the holidays. I'm thankful that my mother-in-law hosts Thanksgiving dinner at her house every year, but because of that, stuffing isn't something that I've mastered yet. However, I did try my hand at this Savory Stuffing recipe from Golden Blossom Honey this week since I had some bread cubes that were about to go bad and ended up impressing myself with how well it turned out.
I didn't make this in the cavity of a turkey, but put it in a casserole dish and baked it for 45 minutes and it turned out perfect. We don't normally add sausage to stuffing, but it was a welcome surprise for the husband. Like last week's recipe, he went back for seconds. This is called savory stuffing, but it also has a nice balance of sweetness too, with the addition of the honey apples and dried cherries. If you haven't mastered stuffing like me, this is a great recipe to experiment with. If I didn't mess it up, you certainly won't either!


1 cup blanched almonds, chopped
1 cup dried cherries
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
black pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (13 3/4 oz.) chicken broth
10 cups stale bread cubes
2 1/2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups celery with leaves, chopped
2 cups onion, chopped
1 pound bulk sausage, crumbled
2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

What is your favorite holiday side dish?


  1. Not something I'd like with all them fruits in it, but I'm glad you had nice dinner and hope you have a nice Thanksgiving next week at the in laws! Are you allowed to have family gatherings? Europe is starting to enforce vaccines on everyone so it feels like living in a massive cage. Germany will make vaccine mandatory for medical workers soon, but the fact that so many of them haven't voluntarily accepted it already makes you very suspicious, does not it? Unvaccinated are not allowed here to bars and concerts, but I just hope they won't ban us from buses and transport as well.

    1. Yes, we can have family gatherings. I think there would be some ugly rioting if they tried restricting families getting together for the holidays.

      To go to concerts and things like that, you have to show a vaccine certificate or a negative covid test within 24 hours of the event. We're not as strict as Europe is. Idk if that's a good thing or a bad thing though.

  2. I make a similar stuffing with craisins for Thanksgiving. So yummy! I love that and the yam casserole with burnt marshmallows on top because I’m still 5 years old.

    1. My mom always made the yams with the burnt marshmallows on top. I could never bring myself to eat those. One year she forgot to set the timer and it came out black, pan and all LOL.

  3. My favorites are typically the stuffed mushrooms. I do love stuffing, but my family isn't big on it, so I don't put much effort into it. My husband told me the other day that "stuffing isn't food". Well, it is. You may not like that it is, but it certainly is!

    1. It isn't food? Of course it is LOL! Stuffed mushrooms, yes! I haven't made those in awhile though. I should do it for Christmas dinner this year. I usually do spinach in mine. So yum!

  4. Ingredients are really very rich. Especially Dried cherries are so new for me, i havent tried it before. I am sure that it must be delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. It is quite delicious! Thank you for your lovely comment, friend!

  5. Se ve muy rico, no suelo poner relleno al pavo pero si me animo hare tu receta. Te mando un beso

  6. It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is coming up so fast

  7. Gracias por la receta, no suelo rellenar el pavo. Pero tal vez me anime. Te mando un beso

  8. That looks delicious! I've never thought of stuffing as a side dish but with these ingredients I could see why it would be a great side! :)

    Hope that your week is going well! Another rainy spring one here!

  9. Not making anything in the cavity of a turkey is a win just there lol sounds like a great experiment it turned out to be indeed.

  10. Ooooh it’s got cherries in there. I like! I would make it with sausage for the kids & a little bit without for me. This looks delicious. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
