Mushroom, Leek & Turkey Sausage Stuffing Recipe #CdnTradition (Giveaway)

This post has been brought to you by Canadian Turkey, all opinions are my own

How are we talking about Thanksgiving already? Where did September go? I am totally not complaining as Fall is my fave and our Canadian Thanksgiving is maybe one of my favourite family get-togethers. I always host and have my children home for dinner. They bring their friends, partners etc and we usually invite neighbours and friends who are alone. Growing up Thanksgiving had always been a big day. It is a time for family to be together and enjoy each other. Spend time chatting and catching up while eating some amazing comfort foods. I always tend to make way too much food but we love leftovers, so it works! I am already drooling thinking about the pies and salads and yummy goodies.

One thing I always make variations of is stuffing. You have to have stuffing with your turkey and my family loves different variations of it. So making a couple of options is a must.

This Mushroom, Leek & Turkey Sausage Stuffing Recipe is an easy one to add onto your holiday menu.

Mushroom, Leek and Turkey Sausage Stuffing

Serves: 8 – 10 people

Prep time: 45 mins.

Cook time: 45 mins.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Canadian turkey sausages
  • 500 gr. loaf crusty bread
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. assorted mushrooms
  • 2 cups thinly sliced leeks
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 cups turkey broth
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ tsp. each ground rosemary, sage and thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes.  Heat oven to 250°F (120°C).
  2. Spread out onto a baking tray and dry out bread until the cubes are toasted and crunchy, 30 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
  3. Remove sausage from casings.  Break up into small pieces and cook in a frying pan over medium heat until cooked through.  Remove sausage and set aside to cool.
  4. Add leeks, onions and celery to the frying pan.  Cook over medium heat until onions and celery are soft and translucent and leeks begin to break down and brown, 20 minutes.  Add garlic and cook an additional 5-8 minutes.  Add white wine to deglaze.  Once wine has evaporated, set aside to cool.
  5. While leeks, onions and celery are cooking, season mushrooms with salt, pepper and olive oil and bake in a 400°F (205°C) oven for 15 – 20 minutes.  Let cool.
  6. Combine sausage, bread, leek mixture and mushrooms in a large bowl.  
  7. Add the beaten egg to the broth and mix.  Slowly pour mixture over the stuffing and mix to combine.  Bread should be wet but not soaked.
  8. Season mixture with herbs.
  9. Bake in an oven-proof casserole dish at 350°F (177°C) for 45 – 60 minutes until browned and crispy.

TIP: Make sure to freeze any leftovers.  For a quick breakfast, heat stuffing in a frying pan and top with fried eggs for an instant hash.

Hosting dinner does not need to be stressful. If you have never cooked a turkey before, Canadian Turkey can help. They have made it foolproof for you with their Turkey Basics Whole Turkey How-Tos.  These step-by-step videos will break down the basics so you can master all the steps needed to make that perfect roast Thanksgiving bird.  You’ll be surprised at how simple it can be to create a special celebration meal with these foolproof tips and easy-to-follow directions.

5 WAYS TO MASTER THANKSGIVING PREP AND PLANNING

  1. For an easy way to ensure extra-crispy skin, unwrap your turkey the day before you are planning to cook it and leave it in the fridge overnight. The extra drying time will add the perfect crispness to your turkey.
  2. Shave hours off of your prep time by going to your supermarket salad bar to stock up on sides and salads.
  3. Keep your oven free for the main dish. Use a slow cooker to prepare a side dish like mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole, and keep it warm so it’s ready to serve.
  4. Make sure you use a good quality meat thermometer to ensure you cook your turkey to the perfect doneness without overcooking. Test your thermometer a few days ahead of time to make sure it is working properly.
  5. Consider cooking your turkey in parts – breasts, thighs and drums for a quicker, foolproof way to get the meat cooked perfectly.
