You may not know, but Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love spending time with my immediate family and thoroughly enjoy devouring the delicious Thanksgiving staples. In fact, this holiday is the only time I will willingly be involved in the cooking.

Now, if you're tired of your old stuffing recipe, try this *very* Minnesotan Wild Rice Stuffing, a Shel B family staple.

Of course, the most important part of this food dish is the wild rice. This ingredient is what truly transforms this side dish into a Minnesotan favorite.

Ingredients Needed For Shel B's Homemade Wild Rice Stuffing

  • 1/2 C. Wild Rice
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Jimmy Dean Sausage
  • 1 Large Onion, Chopped
  • 2 C. Celery, Chopped
  • 7 oz Bag of Seasoned Bread Cubes
  • 4 C. Chicken Broth
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • Dash of Sage
  • 1/8 C. Melted Butter

My family likes to double the recipe and freeze half for another round of enjoyment in late January or early February.
