Patti LaBelle Shares Her Recipe for Her Favorite Holiday Stuffing

If cooking up a storm is your thought of Holiday heaven, you are in luck. Though 2020 has been one heck of a troublesome yr, Patti LaBelle is spreading some mouth-watering cheer by displaying the way to cook her Favorite stuffing recipe, which she calls her “Do not-Block-The-Blessing Dressing.”

“I make my stuffing on prime of the range in a skillet—not in an oven” LaBelle writes in her cookbook, which contains a version of the recipe she recreates on this video. Nevertheless, here she provides a few particular key substances—spicy turkey sausage and mushrooms—for a particular twist. For those who do not prefer to spend all day within the kitchen or are scaling again on festive feasts, she assures us that this dressing is simple.

“For actual you guys, it takes 20 to 25 minutes for perfection.” And in terms of prepping the remainder of your meal, remember to take LaBelle’s phrases to heart: “Butter never hurts.”


2 lb. spicy turkey sausage
20 shiitake mushrooms, sliced very thin
12 tbsp. butter
1 large onion, chopped
3 medium celery ribs, chopped
1 medium green pepper, seeded and chopped
2 jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped, optional
1 tbsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tbsp. turmeric
1 lb. white sandwich bread, cut into pieces about 1/2 inch square
1 1/2 c. turkey or chicken broth, approximately
season with salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Cook Spicy Sausage and Mushrooms
  • In a deep, 12-inch nonstick skillet, sauté the spicy turkey sausage over medium-high heat.
  • After the sausage starts to brown, add the mushrooms to the skillet and continue to sauté for a few more minutes.
  • Cover the pan and turn off the heat, letting the sausage and mushrooms continue to cook in the pan.

Prepare “The Trinity”

  • In a separate deep, 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 4 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, green pepper, and jalapeños, if using.
  • Add the poultry seasoning, celery seed, turmeric, seasoned salt, and a little bit of chicken stock.
  • Cook uncovered for a few minutes, stirring often.
  • Then, cover the pan and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Uncover the pan with “The Trinity” and add your prepared sausage-mushroom sauté.

Add the Bread

  • In a large bowl, toss the bread with 1 cup of the broth to lightly moisten the bread.
  • Add to the skillet, mixing well, adding more broth to reach the desired moistness.
  • Reduce the heat to very low and cover.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the dressing is heated through, about 10 minutes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
