Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away for us here in Canada. A sausage stuffing has always been our family tradition for the big turkey days. This Blueberry Sourdough Turkey Sausage Stuffing is a bit of a departure from our usual tradition. Probably yours, too, but sometimes, it’s just good to shake things up a little. And this stuffing will do just that because, blueberries? In stuffing?

Yes indeed, the blueberries, along with sourdough bread, turkey sausage and sage, will make the stuffing the star of the show.

Let’s Be Thankful

I really love Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday that’s all about gathering with family and friends, eating an amazing feast together, and feeling gratitude for all of it.

What could be more perfect? There’s no financial stress, because, that other holiday, still to come, always has a big financial factor, right? I love, also, not having the pressure to decorate big time, being personally partial to the warm and earthy colours and textures of nature and autumn. I’ve never been a fan of the glitter and sparkle, so much.

To me, Thanksgiving is yup, being thankful. Regardless of how big or small, don’t we all have something to be thankful for?  The best part: we all get to celebrate Thanksgiving in the unique ways that we do, minus all of the expectations, hype and pressure of the commercial world.

All of that being said ,Thanksgiving is, front and center, about a feast, which is, in my house, a shared project and always turns out amazing and delicious, as, I am sure it does in all of your homes, too.

This Sourdough sausage stuffing has blueberries and turkey sausage and is maybe a change up from your usual stuffing. It tastes incredible, smells wonderful and makes a great complement to your Thanksgiving turkey.

You can use fresh, frozen or dried blueberries for this sausage stuffing recipe.
