Sausage Biscuit Dressing - The Southern Lady Cooks

This dressing is one of our favorites even if you love the classic Southern Cornbread Dressing you should give this one a try too.

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS SAUSAGE DRESSING

We love sausage and and we love biscuits so this dressing quickly became a family favorite. We will always love the classic cornbread dressing but this was also a nice change! We always serve dressing for Thanksgiving but we also wanted it for Christmas so that is where this recipe came to be.

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Biscuits – should be a day old, so they hold up well. You will need 8 cups of biscuits so around 10-12 biscuits should work.
  • Mild Breakfast Pork Sausage – We use Jimmy Dean, it seems to have less grease and we don’t have to drain it.
  • Yellow Onion and Celery – these add wonderful flavor.
  • Sage and Thyme – great herbs for this dressing.
  • Chicken Broth – This is the moisture for the dressing.

SWAPS

You could try turkey breakfast sausage in this dish. If you don’t want to make homemade biscuits, you can buy frozen ones. You will need to make them in advance before you make this recipe.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

Dressing is one of the easiest recipes to make! Some people are intimidated by it because it’s such an important dish for the holidays but anyone can pull this one off.

PREPARATIONS

I like to chop all of my onion and celery out and go ahead and get the thyme and sage measured out.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350. Tear biscuits in to one inch pieces and place in a bowl (this will come to about 8 cups of biscuit pieces).

Step 2
Brown sausage, onion, celery and minced garlic in a skillet. Drain. 

Step 3
 Stir in sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Add sausage mixture to the biscuits. Stir in sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Add sausage mixture to the biscuits.

Step 4
Pour chicken broth over mixture and place in a sprayed 2 quart casserole dish. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake an additional 20 minutes until dressing is browned on top.

⭐TIP

We have made this with both fresh herbs and dried. It was great both times so you can do either. If you don’t want to make homemade biscuits you can always buy the biscuits that are frozen and make them a day in advance.

RECIPE VARIATIONS

If you love cornbread dressing you can easily add cornbread to this recipe. You could do half and half if you like! Gluten Free biscuits should work in this dish too. I think cranberries, walnuts or pecans would be all be great in this one as well.

SERVE THIS WITH

We love to add this dressing to our Christmas dinner so it goes wonderful with our delicious Garlic Cheese Grits and our Southern Broccoli Casserole. Both make great side dishes for any holiday gathering.

❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make the biscuits a day in advance?

Yes! I always make mine a day in advance and just put the dish together the next day. This sausage biscuit dressing comes together quickly.

Can I use beef broth?

I think that would work just fine.

STORING AND REHEATING

We just store this in an air tight container and reheat on low in the oven if reheating the entire dish. If you are only heating a few up for leftovers we just heat in the microwave.
