tonight is our neighborhood thanksgiving potluck and food drive.
it is one of my favorite neighborhood activities, and since it is thanksgiving i am (of course) making my mom's stuffing.
it is delicious -
and yes, i am biased,
but if you are going to eat highly caloric carb-y goodness, this is your dish.
if you are not into sausage or are a vegetarian, use sauteed mushrooms instead,
and substitute veggie broth for the chicken.
you can easily double or triple this for loads of guests.
(you can adjust ratios to taste-
ie, add more liquid to make stuffing more moist or
add more sausage because it is more delicious)
- 1 1/2 loaves white or wheat bread (i buy the cheapest store brand bread)
- one onion, chopped
- 5-7 stalks of celery, chopped
- 1 pound mild italian sausage
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 TBS Bells poultry seasoning
- 2-3 bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup warm water OR same amount chicken broth
- cooking spray
- cube bread into large bowl
- saute onion & celery and set aside (or dump over cubed bread)
- remove sausage from casing unless bulk sausage & saute/crumble
- add crumbled sausage to bread, onion and celery
- combine 1 cup milk, egg & poultry seasoning. pour over stuffing and mix until well distributed
- pour broth or bouillon/water mixture over stuffing. (add water or more broth if desired to make more moist)
- Put in greased baking pan or stuff into a turkey. if in a pan, bake at 350 for 20 minutes covered, then bake 20 more minutes uncovered.
Best with gravy and shared around a table
