With Turkey Day on the horizon it’s often a stressful build up for those carrying out the preparation; extended family to be housed, children in need of entertainment and rapidly depleting supplies of bourbon and beer.
Struggling to Spice up Thanksgiving?
So for those of you, who are celebrating this Thursday, allow us to help you out a little in the kitchen with a delicious Sausage Stuffing recipe, courtesy of our very own Debbie Petermann, an integral member of our stateside team.
This authentic American staple is a traditional family recipe that Debbie just cannot keep away from “It’s so tasty, I always get my hand slapped sneaking pieces of the sausage.” A generational recipe with a difference, it’s been tried, tested and guaranteed to make Thanksgiving a special meal.
