All my memories of Thanksgiving, are of spending it at my Aunt and Uncle’s house up on the North Shore. Only one do I remember when my Dad decided to try it at home and it put me off Turkey since I was 12 years old. Poor guy. Either way it is built on tradition and they cook all the food. What better way to go!! Kidding! I do make some of the desserts though. I have thought of doing a friends Thanksgiving though and this recipe would be a great addition. I have included below some things that I want to try adding to this when I make it again! This is based off this original recipe.
Ingredients: 1 loaf ciabatta bread torn or cut into bite-size pieces ~ 1 package of sausage ~ 1 cup chopped onion ~1/2 cup chopped celery ~ 2 teaspoons thyme ~ 1 teaspoon sage ~ 1/2 teaspoon Basil ~ 2 tablespoons olive oil ~ 1 egg, lightly beaten ~ 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used a Horseradish Cheddar) ~ salt and ground black pepper to taste ~ 1/2 – 3/4 cup chicken broth
Linking up with Jessica and Ashley.

I love love love homemade stuffing. I haven’t thought to use ciabatta bread. I need to try it.
It was really good I just needed to cut the bread a little smaller, but the flavor combo was really good! There was also a herbed Focaccia bread that I may try as well.
Ooo now I’m hungry!!
Glad to be of service! 😉

I though stuffing was amazing, and then I saw this stuffing with sausage and cheese…mind blown 🙂
It totally added a whole level of flavor!
oh my gosh. why am i allergic to sausage?! waaaaah. looks so beyond good.
That shouldn’t stop you…does hard salami or pepperoni count as a sausage? If it does then what about ground beef, or ham.
I love sausage! This looks amazing. I’m in the market for a few less popular – but yummy – Thanksgiving dishes so when I transition them over to gluten free it won’t be as obvious to my taste buds that I changed a favorite dish. This one is definitely appealing and it looks fairly simple – which is always an added bonus during holidays!
It was really easy to make and delicious! I love the traditional dishes, but it is nice to mix in a few new ones too.
