Maple Cranberry Apple Stuffing

The holidays are always my favorite time of the year, it’s that time of the year when your whole family comes together to eat good food and share some laughs. It’s that magical time of the year when Christmas songs are playing on the radio and houses are lit up throughout the neighborhood.

The Holidays Are So Magical

I don’t know about you but I have to say one of my favorite things about the holiday season is definitely the food. The food seems to taste so much better during this time of the year, maybe it’s because so much love is put into each dish.

Maple Sausage Cranberry Apple Stuffing

I seem to have passed this love of stuffing through my genes because my kids can’t get enough of it either. I’m definitely that one person who loads up her plate with two huge scoops of stuffing and then layers it with tons of gravy.

This Maple Sausage Cranberry Apple Stuffing recipe was a hit at my family’s holiday dinners. They love it so much I’ve had to up my potluck contribution to two serving dishes and I secretly make myself my own dish to eat at a later date.

To create this recipe I use products from my local Safeway Grocery Store. I personally love working with the O Organics ingredients, they are that high-quality ingredient at that affordable price you just can’t beat.

The difference when working with O Organics products is almost night and day as far as overall final dish taste. I used to not be able to afford Organic foods since of course, I have a huge family of 5.
