Recipe: Tim’s Sausage & Herb Stuffing

Stuffing is a staple on family dinner tables, especially during the holidays. This stuffing came out super buttery, moist and crispy in all the right spots. Homemade stuffing is not that difficult to produce and it smells/taste amazing. For this stuffing recipe I used a loaf of plain ol’ white bread, hot Italian sausage, fresh sage and thyme.  I also incorporated dried cherries instead of cranberries.  The dried cherries bring a little sweetness to a very savory and buttery side dish. Most recipes for homemade stuffing use apples and/or cranberries.  I presume that most have cranberry sauce on the side during a holiday meal. Extra cranberries on a plate is a little much in my opinion.  But if one must have cranberries in the stuffing, I suggest substituting dried cranberries rather than the cherries.  I hope you enjoy this stuffing recipe and that it finds its way to your family table.
