OLD FASHIONED STUFFING

Get outta here with your nuts and berries, like seriously. I only want butter, sage sausage, more butter, and other tasty stuff in my stuffing. Let's get straight to Mona's (my great-grandmother) recipe!


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 loaf of good sourdough bread cut into cubes, and dried in oven
  • 3/4 to 1 stick of butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 celery sticks, diced
  • 1 heaping tsp. of dried sage
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean or Farmer John's Sage Sausage
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 3 cups of good chicken broth

PROCEDURE

1. Cut bread into cubes and dry the cubes on a cookie sheet in a 250 F oven until dry and toasty.

2. Melt butter in a pan, add diced onion and celery and cook until onion and celery until soft, adding sage, salt, and pepper.

3. Cook sausage in a separate pan until just done, then add the sausage and fat to the softened celery and onion. Check the seasoning here - it needs quite a bit since you'll be adding this to the bread.

4. Mix sausage, veggie mix with the bread in a large bowl.

5. Pour the broth over the stuffing and mix together gently.

6. Put the stuffing mixture in a buttered 12x16 or 10x15 dish (whatever you have is fine).

7. Bake in a convection oven at 375 for about 40 minutes (if it's coming out of the fridge) or until it's bubbling at the base and crispy and brown on top.
