Grilled Sausage Stuffing is smokey and delicious and saves space in the oven during holiday cooking. Give this Grilled Stuffing Recipe a try for your next family feast.
It’s almost time for Thanksgiving, which is something my family looks forward to every year – especially my tween daughter. She loves to be by my side for two days straight cooking, so she asks that we host it every year.
When we have a large gathering, space in the oven is at a premium. Lucky for me, my husband and brothers (and of course me) have no issue taking some of the meal prep outside to the grill.
Last Christmas Eve, my brothers even painstakingly cooked 100+ homemade pierogis on the grill while I handled the fish and everything else inside for our traditional Polish Wigilia dinner.
This year, I decided to tinker with grilling stuffing. Yup…stuffing. I have never been one to cook stuffing inside the bird and I wondered how it would taste with a hint of smokiness if I prepared it on the grill. So, I decided to make a Grilled Sausage Stuffing.
It came out great. My family enjoyed it so much and not a smidge of it was left.
I first grilled French bread. Then I grilled the stuffing. When it was time to assemble the whole Grilled Sausage Stuffing Dish, I just cooked the pan of stuffing right on the grill.
I actually grilled the bread the day before I assembled the Grilled Sausage Stuffing and just stored it in a baggie overnight. The next day, I cubed the French bread and grilled the sausage. Then, I simply assembled the stuffing and cooked it through on the grill.
My boys especially went crazy over it! And not only does this save space, it tastes delicious.
So no matter where you live, don’t forget about your grill this holiday season! (Or the side burner). You – or a helper – can take care of a number of dishes while the rest is made in your kitchen.
Plus…grilled food is always that much more delicious, am I right?!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving and holiday feasts!
