In this post, I’m sharing with you an Italian sausage stuffing. It is made with apples, Pandoro, walnuts, and olive oil. 


There are a lot of Christmas classics in this Italian sausage stuffing recipe: apples, walnuts, sausages, Pandoro, olive oil…

I had to make an awesome stuffing recipe to justify me celebrating Thanksgiving in Rome. The sweet taste of Pandoro was perfect for the intent. It stays soft with a little crust and magically absorbs the juices of sausages and the apple aroma.
