Sausage and Fennel Stuffing
Wedges of fennel and onion meet chunks of sweet Italian sausage in this textural, satisfying stuffing. A quick homemade sausage laced with red wine and fennel seeds is an optional upgrade for added flavor (see Notes).
DIY Italian Sausage: Combine 1 pound ground pork, 3 tablespoons red wine, 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, 2 teaspoons kosher salt, 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 30 minutes before using.
