Sourdough Kale Sausage Bacon Stuffing

This sourdough kale sausage bacon stuffing is the flavor-packed stuffing you need on your Thanksgiving table. You’re going to love this combo of double meat and kale.

There is nothing more I love than stuffing. Every single Thanksgiving I would fill my plate with stuffing and take a few loan slices of turkey. I would then eat everything on my plate as fast as possible and run to get more stuffing. I was hopeless.

This usually resulted in my dad yelling at me to stop eating all the stuffing and to instead eat more turkey.

No. I’m not eating more boring turkey when there is stuffing to be had.

Now that I’m an adult I can make and eat stuffing whenever I want. That’s mostly because as an adult I’m just a grown up with power. Power to deem it ok to make stuffing all year round and eat half of the dish in one sitting. Not that I have ever done that before.

Nope.

Not me.

Well, maybe I would if it was this sourdough kale sausage bacon stuffing.

So this year when Jones Dairy Farm asked me to come up with a stuffing for their Thanksgiving stuffing microsite I basically jumped at the chance and then went and ate my weight in stuffing. Hello, carby deliciousness! If you’re a big fan of stuffing (or do you call it dressing?) head on over to see the recipes for this delicious stuffing and 26 other unique stuffing recipes.

I came up with a totally flavor-packed stuffing full of sourdough, kale, sausage and bacon. I like to think that because I included kale it automatically makes this stuffing ok to eat in massive quantities.

Right?
