Sausage Stuffing Recipe


8 cups (14 oz) store bought bread cubes
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 1/2 cups diced onions
1 cup diced celery
4 cloves garlic
1 lb fresh sausage
2 3/4 cup chicken broth
1 large egg, beaten
1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
1 tbsp fresh chopped sage
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with butter.
Place the stuffing cubes in a large mixing bowl.
In a large sauté pan, melt the butter. Add the onions and celery and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes more. Add the vegetables to the stuffing cubes.
In the same pan, cook the sausage over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, until browned and cooked through, breaking up the sausage with a metal spatula while cooking (the largest pieces should be no greater than 1/4-inch). Add the browned sausage to the bread cubes and vegetables.
Add the chicken broth, egg, rosemary, sage, parsley, salt and pepper to the bread cube mixture and mix until the bread is soft and moistened. Transfer the stuffing to the prepared baking dish and bake for 55-60 minutes, uncovered, until deeply golden and crisp on top.
