Ingredients Needed to make Pull Apart Sausage Stuffing Ring
- Refrigerator Biscuits – we used 2 cans of large flaky biscuits, each were 16.3 ounces. Any variety is fine for this recipe.
- Bulk or Breakfast Sausage – a one-pound roll of breakfast sausage is just the right amount for this stuffing ring. We’ve tried both the regularly seasoning kind and the maple flavored. Both are amazing.
- Unsalted Butter – if using salted butter, omit the salt called for in the recipe.
- Green Onions – adds a subtle onion flavor without being overpowering. If you like, dice up a small onion instead (red onion is our favorite!)
- Celery – adds flavor and texture. We thin sliced rib celery, but to save time you could buy pre-cut.
- Apple – adds sweetness and flavor. Leave the apples unpeeled to add color!
- Egg – one large eggs helps to bind the stuffing together.
- Fresh Herbs – Thyme, Parsley and Sage

Recipe Substitutions and Add-Ins
Sausage – Try different sausage flavors and varieties. Sage sausage is perfectly seasoned for Fall. Mild Italian sausages (skin removed) browned like bulk sausage adds amazing flavor to the sausage stuffing mixture.
Onion – while we love green onions for their very mild flavor, a diced red or yellow onion adds bolder flavor.
Spices – add more savory flavor with a few cloves of garlic or a dash of garlic powder. Like it spicy? A pinch of red pepper flakes or a tablespoon of sriracha added to the beaten egg will give it some heat.
