Vegan Sausage Stuffing Casserole at Thanksgiving is spiced just right and it's made with cornbread. This dressing recipe can match any stuffing in any test.
Vegan Sausage Stuffing Casserole at Thanksgiving is quite a treat and it can match any family favorite. Maybe even surpass.
It's moist and spicy just like the original omni dressing.
I'm starting to think up our Thanksgiving menu and a major part of it is already done. We will have three main tasty dishes with this vegan sausage dressing being one of them.
Then there will be a cold bean salad of some sort and dinner rolls, of course.
I really enjoy planning meals. Not at the last moment but when I am in the mood. Then I get out a pencil and pad and make up a few menus at a time.
They are kept in a blue binder that I can always refer back to. Ohhh, I digress.
Another favorite stuffing dish for the family has lots of mushrooms. It's very different from this recipe and you just might want to give Savory Cremini Mushroom Dressing a try too.
Take a peek!
This traditional comfort food can be served to any member of your family or group of friends because they will truly appreciate it.
I used store-bought plant-based sausage for this Vegan Sausage Stuffing Casserole because you always need a little help on a big cooking day like Thanksgiving.
Make Ahead For the Holiday When You Can
Another helpful option is that the casserole can be put together a day or two or three ahead and then kept in the refrigerator. Then bake the day of the party.
In fact, every one of the recipes in the menu plan below can be prepared in advance and baked in advance or baked the day of.
I need to get a post up with a Thanksgiving day menu and give the shopping list and planning instructions. This week for sure!
I mean, it's Oct. 7th already and you know how time flies.
Below is a Thanksgiving Menu to tempt you to no end. Click on any of the highlighted links to look at the included recipes and see lots of delicious looking photos.
Vegan Thanksgiving Menu
You can start your day with Easy Pumpkin Muffins and a nice cup of coffee.
For a super pre-dinner appetizer, there's Rolled Toasted Mushroom Appetizers because everyone in the house will love them.
Naturally, there has to be dip and veggies so pull out the White Bean Dip because it's a great partner to just about everything.
In the morning, right after your muffin, you can fill up the crockpot with the best Thanksgiving side dish. Slow Cooker Wild Rice is full of vegetables, flavor, is gorgeous and tasty.
Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans is a fantastic twist on the typical sweet mashed sweet potatoes.
Vegan Meatloaf with Chickpeas, Green Split Peas and Mushrooms is amazing. Leave off the tomato topping and serve with a delicious Brown Gravy.
The word of the day is Dessert and in the tradition of Americans, there are at least two desserts. Mini Pecan Pies Tarts will make everyone very happy.
Gosh, I'm stuffed.
Leftovers freeze beautifully. I will make this recipe just to freeze in single sized servings. It heats so quickly in the microwave and is a really tasty snack or lunch.
Let cool to room temperature.
Cover with plastic wrap and then slide into a freezer bag. You can also freeze in smaller single or double serving freezer containers.
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator to defrost from 4 to 6 hours.
THE NIGHT OF SERVING IF PREVIOUSLY PROZEN:
Place the dressing in a microwavable safe bowl and heat on high for about 2 to 3 minutes stirring every minute.
