As much as we typically think of Thanksgiving as a huge gathering of all of our loves ones, there are some years when your Thanksgiving gathering may be paired down. Maybe you’re just having a few friends over the celebrate the holiday and don’t want to make a big batch of my sourdough Thanksgiving stuffing? Lucky for you, I created this small batch stuffing recipe.

It’s the perfect stuffing recipe if you’re young, on a budget and hosting your own small Thanksgiving get together.  Maybe you’re even hosting your first Thanksgiving? The idea of someone cooking my stuffing recipe for their first Thanksgiving makes me so happy.

You could even make my one-pan roast turkey breast and veggies to go along with it. Hello perfect first Thanksgiving dinner–it’s almost like I planned it that way…

This recipe has a smaller list of ingredients than my other stuffing recipe, but it still packs a ton of flavour. It comes down to the mushrooms that provide some “meatiness”, and the fresh sage. When it comes to herbs in stuffing, you could use a combination of different kinds of fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage etc.), but you absolutely can’t miss the fresh sage. Even if you have to go to three or four grocery stores, it is worth it.

As much as I love the holiday season, I’m a little sad that American Thanksgiving has almost passed us by, the fall is one of my favourite times of year and I’m not sure that I’m quite ready to face the depths of a Canadian winter.
