The classic side for your turkey dinner. Substitute two bags of your favorite dry stuffing mix for day-old bread. Try one bag of classic and one bag of cornbread.


  • 14 cups day-old bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 lb bulk DLM Pork Sausage
  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 cups minced onion
  • 3 cups minced celery
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh sage, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 3 cups turkey stock or broth


Preheat oven to 300°F. Spread bread on two large baking sheets. Bake 20-30 minutes until golden brown and dry, stirring frequently. Let cool and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
In a sauté pan, brown sausage and cook until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes. Add sausage to bread.
In the pan with remaining sausage fat, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion and celery 5-7 minutes until they begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley and cook 2-3 minutes.
Add mixture to bread, toss gently, and blend in remaining ingredients. Add stock in small amounts until desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Cool completely.
Place in a buttered casserole dish, cover, and bake for one hour in a 325°F oven. Remove foil for the last five minutes to crisp the top.

Could you use the croutons Dorothy Lane Market sells for the bread?

Dorothy Lane Market says:

Hi Kathleen! Thank you for this great question. You can absolutely use croutons instead of the bread in this recipe. We recommend using the same amount of croutons as bread (14 cups) for the best result.
