German sausage stuffing

OK. I’ve been a shitty food blogger. I haven’t updated in almost an entire month.

Life gets busy. Work gets in the way. Thanksgiving happened. You get it.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I hosted the holiday at my home this year. German sausage stuffing is always a big hit. This is my mom’s recipe – but it’s so easy, quick, and delicious.



5 uncooked bratwurst, casings removed

1 small loaf of wonder bread

1 large chopped white onion

1 cup of milk

1 extra-large egg, beaten

1/2 stick of butter

1 Tbsp. of parsley

Salt & black pepper to taste

The first thing you should do is cut up the entire loaf of wonder bread into 1″ cubes. Lay the cubes out on a baking sheet and pop into a 350 degree F oven to toast the bread up a bit. The bread cubes should be a light golden color.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a pan on high heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent. Throw in the bratwurst, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Make sure it is completely browned and cooked through.

Next, whisk the egg and the milk together in a separate bowl.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes, making sure to moisten them all. Add the bratwurst and onion mixture as well, including the drippings from the pan. Fold into the bread cubes. All of the cubes should have some degree of wetness, but none should be soggy. Season with the parsley, salt, and pepper.

Spoon the stuffing mixture into a greased 9″x13″ pan, and smash it down evenly with the back of a spoon. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes. Once the stuffing is golden brown, you are ready to dig in!
