Sausage Filling


Now  I make no bones about the fact that I HATE to cook.........

I know how to cook but I would rather do just about anything BUT cook.......

For Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, I make a very EASY Sausage Filling to serve with Turkey.........

And I mean easy because I just came home after working all night and threw it together and popped it in the oven so I will only have to heat it up tomorrow for Dinner as I am also working tonight ( Thanksgiving Eve, remember Hospitals never close!)

This post took longer to do than the Filling did!!

4 simple ingredients and seasonings.......
 1 Bag of Martin's Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing......
 Diced Celery........

I use about 3/4's of the container.....
 Yes, I get fresh already diced celery!!

3/4 - 1 lb. of Pork Sausage and 1 jar of  Heinz Pork Home Style Gravy......
 Mix stuffing, celery and gravy in a bowl.......
 Mine is a bowl from Tupperware called "That's a Bowl"............
 Fry the sausage up until brown........
 Drain and add to the stuffing mixture........
I season with onion salt ( you can add diced onions but the boys do not like them), garlic salt and pepper!

Pour mixture into a pan and YES, I even use a disposable tin foil pan!!
Cover with tin foil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes!!
  And here it is ready to serve........
 I cut it into squares and place it on a nice platter to serve. Pour gravy over or eat just like this!!
 The potatobred stuffing and the gravy make it nice and moist.

Another option would be to use turkey sausage and turkey gravy to moisten the stuffing......

 EASY PEASY but delicious!!

And may I add that Sam's Club makes a mean apple pie!!  We do not care for pumpkin.....

Sausage Filling

3/4 lb. of pork sausage
I package of Bread crumbs ( Martin's potato Bread Cubes)
3/4 tsp. of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1 can of Heinz Pork Gravy
1 cup of chopped celery
Sprinkle with onion and garlic salt

Fry sausage
Combine all ingredients in large bowl
Make sure bread crumbs are moistened by gravy
Pour into baking dish, cover with tin foil, use second rack

Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degrees preheated oven


Just the 5 of us will be enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner together around 4:00 pm so I can sleep a bit in the morning after working the night before and so Jim and Danielle can get a bit of sleep before they go in to work at Target for 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving Night.........

I have worked either the Eve or the Day of every Thanksgiving for the past 37 years so working on a Holiday is no big deal for my family....We just work around it!!

I am off on Thursday and Friday nights though.......

I hope you get to spend Thanksgiving with those you love!!


And I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
