Who doesn’t love stuffing? When you think about Thanksgiving, turkey and stuffing are the first thing on the menu. In my house, we always made sausage stuffing. Chunks of bread, sausage and vegetables all smothered in gravy, yum!!
This is comfort food at its best. It is crunchy and chewy and full of flavor. Because you make this in the oven, it can be a side dish with any meal.
16 Cups bread cubes (1½ lb loaf)
1 Lb Italian Sausage
2 TBSP Fresh Parsley
1 TBSP Sage
2 Cups Onions
1 Cup Celery
3 Cups Chicken Stock
1 Stick Butter
Salt & Pepper
Cut the bread into small cubes. Toast in oven for 6-7 minutes. When cool, add to large bowl. Remove the casing from the sausage and cook in a large sauté pan. Break up the sausage with a fork or a potato masher. When the sausage is brown, remove it from the pan and set aside.
Add the butter, onion and celery to the pan and cook until the onions are translucent. Add the sausage back to the sauté pan with the parsley, sage, salt and pepper continue cooking for 1 minute.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. Add the eggs and stock to the bread cubes. Add the sausage-onion mixture to the bread and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Put the mixture in a greased casserole dish and bake at 350º for 30 minutes.
