You’ll love the “sweet side” of stuffing with this Cranberry Maple Stuffing made with a salty All Natural Jones Sausage, blueberries, cranberries, and softened apples. Its the ultimate holiday recipe!

Ok, do you guys realize that Thanksgiving is in less than 30 days! It’s crazy! I feel like I was just starting my New Years Goals for 2014 and we are already almost in 2015…. {ugh… slow down!}

Any who, since it’s almost Thanksgiving time I thought I would start whipping out some of the good ole’ Thanksgiving recipes!

But, I have a confession to make and its pretty serious business. Today’s recipe, if you couldn’t already tell by the title is a Stuffing recipe .. here’s the confession…

I actually never liked Stuffing {or Dressing.. whatever floats your boat} growing up.

My mom use to make it with PepperRidge Farm Croutons, celery {which I also despise}, and sausage. The stuffing was always an after thought in our house, nobody really ate it but we had it on the table because it was Thanksgiving and you “needed” to have that on the table.

It was always so gross… super salty, soggy, and ughh yuck! {sorry mom.. I loved everything else!}

So needless to say when I got married and we started doing our own Thanksgivings, stuffing was not on the menu …. until this year that is!

What changed my mind you ask?

Well .. this recipe! Even though I didn’t eat stuffing, I know most people do.  So out of the love of my heart I fought through off my stuffing dislike and cooked up this Cranberry Maple Stuffing with Jones Sausage. Let me tell ya… I’m officially a Stuffing convert!

This stuffing is sweet, salty, tart … basically an organized chaos flavor explosion in your mouth!
