I don’t know about you, but for me the ONE thing I long for most after Thanksgiving is the filling! Sure, the turkey and sauce are all great too, and yes, even the cranberry sauce. But in person, no Thanksgiving Day is complete without the homemade filling, and this recipe never disappoints!

This is what I do this Thanksgiving Day with my dry salted turkey and this delicious cranberry and pear sauce. Here are more Thanksgiving recipes to go with your turkey this year!

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I thought I was going to revive that amazing fill from the archives. If you can’t find a good Italian chicken sausage, turkey sausage is great too. Leftovers should be stable for about 3 days.

I buy wholemeal baguettes and cut the bread into cubes the night before so that it can harden overnight. You can also do this in the oven on the day of, but personally I prepare as much as possible the night before.

In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and sauté for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent. Transfer to a large bowl.

In the same pan over medium heat, crumble the sausage with a wooden spoon until it is lightly browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer the sausage with the onion and celery mixture to the bowl.

Put the bread, sage and thyme with the sausage and onion mixture in the bowl and stir. Add the chicken broth and stir to coat the bread evenly. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and stir to mix well.

Put in the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Stir gently with a wooden spoon. Continue to bake until golden brown, another 30 to 35 minutes. Serve immediately.
