- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup cooked and crumbled sausage
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the buttermilk until fully incorporated.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Gently fold in the cooked sausage, diced celery, diced onion, dried cranberries, chopped parsley, dried sage, dried thyme, and ground black pepper until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Remove the loaf from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, slice the Thanksgiving-In-A-Loaf Bread into thick slices and serve alongside your favorite Thanksgiving dishes.
Tips and Tricks:
For an extra burst of flavor, try adding chopped pecans or walnuts to the batter.
Make sure to fully cook the sausage before adding it to the batter to ensure it’s safe to eat.
You can customize this recipe by adding your favorite Thanksgiving ingredients, such as cooked bacon, chopped apples, or shredded cheese.
