We’re down to a week before Thanksgiving. I’m not sure where this year has gone. It’s Thanksgiving y’all. Insert slight panic attack. I’d like to re-wind to spring but we all know that can’t happen. SO I guess I’ll get myself pulled together and start prepping for Thanksgiving. We all know that the Turkey is the main man of the big bust your pants open day but I’m all about that stuffing y’all. True story. Carbs have my heart. Always will so I’m sharing a super simple but flavorful stuffing recipe as part of REAL® SEAL’s Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner Party. Each day this week a blogger will showcase a different course to this dinner party. Today it’s my day. I’m putting on my oven mitts, and pulling this Sausage, Apple and Herb Stuffing out of the oven.

    Stuffing is by far and above the most important part of the Thanksgiving meal, as far as I’m concerned. In fact, I actually made TWO different kinds this year, because I couldn’t decide between bread and rice. (Yes, I have a stuffing problem. I’m okay with it.)
    Love the combo of apple and sausage you’ve used here. Nothing like that sweet and savoury combination.

    What a fantastic looking stuffing! Stuffing is actually my favorite part of Thanksgiving and usually fill my plate with so much stuffing I’m pretty sure my brother thinks I’m trying to steal it all. I love the addition of sweet apples…yum!

    For me, the Thanksgiving feast is all about the stuffing, for sure! And I can never turn down a great bread stuffing that incorporates sausage. This looks great, Paula!
