City Market's Sausage, Kale & Butternut Squash Stuffing

City Market Prepared Foods

We call this a stuffing, but please note that we don’t recommend cooking it inside a turkey.

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

50 minutes


10 Servings


4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
1 pound sausage (City Market Holiday variety, casing removed)
3 leek (sliced)
1⁄2 squash, butternut (peeled and diced)
1 bunch kale (leaves trimmed and chopped)
11 ounces stuffing (mix, like City Market's housemade mix)
1 egg (large)
2 cups stock, turkey
1 cup cheese, parmesan (diced)
1⁄4 cup cheese, parmesan (shredded)
  salt (to taste)
  black pepper, ground (to taste )


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter a 9 by 11 inch baking dish and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add leeks and squash to skillet. Season lightly with salt and pepper, then cook until leeks are soft, about 3 minutes. Add the kale, toss and cover to wilt, about 4 minutes. Add stuffing mix and the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, combine to melt butter. Whisk egg and chicken broth in a large bowl until smooth; stir in the diced parmesan. Pour mixture into the large skillet and cook until liquid has been absorbed by the bread.

Transfer mixture into the prepared baking dish. Scatter shredded cheese evenly on top. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes. If the top starts to brown, cover with aluminum foil.
