This past weekend we headed over to a friend’s house for a Friendsgiving celebration. Each couple is responsible for bringing a dish. Or in my case, I was in charge of bringing a side dish AND my peanut butter balls because I’m pretty certain they wouldn’t allow me in the door if I were to show up without those bad boys.
I wanted to bring something new instead of relying on one of my usual recipes. I remembers that last Thanksgiving my aunt made this really good sausage, apple, and cranberry dressing so I called her up and asked for the recipe.
Hey, it’s better than showing up with a bunch with a few boxes of Stove Top.
Now, this isn’t your usual dressing, which I’m sure you figured out from the name. Another different aspect of this dressing is that I used mild Italian sausage, specifically Johnsonville. The Italian sausage gives the dish a lot more flavor, in my opinion.
If you try out this recipe, keep in mind that it isn’t like the mushy dressing a lot of us are used to dining on on Thanksgiving.
Although, if mushiness is your jam, you can always up the turkey stock. More liquid = more mushiness.
Be honest, who’s wearing their stretchy pants on Thursday?
