Italian Sausage Stuffing Casserole

From the folks at the Johnsonsville Sausage company, a highly seasoned unstuffed-stuffing. It's really a one dish meal. The original recipe called for adding a small can (2 1/4 oz) of chopped black olives but I omitted that as we don't care for the taste. Feel free to add it back.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF.
  2. Butter a 2 quart baking dish.
  3. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain & remove from skillet. Set aside.
  4. Pour any grease from skillet & melt butter.
  5. Add celery & onion and saute until slightly tender, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the green pepper & garlic and continue to saute until all veggies are tender.
  6. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing, sausage, celery mixture, cheese & pepper. Add broth and egg and toss to combine.
  7. Spoon into prepared dish, cover and bake for 35 minutes.
  8. Uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Very nice weekday meal. I don't buy the boxed stuffing mixes because of the salt and preservatives, so made my own, adding in the dried herbs required, to get the flavor. One change I will make next time is, to raise the oven temp. to 350 degrees. Maybe it's because of the boxed stuffing that 325 works, but I felt the end result was a tad bit too soft. Still a tasty recipe. :)

I made this Sunday night for dinner. It was wonderful and very tasty! In place of the green pepper, I had to use diced red bell pepper. I noticed by the recipe that you black olives could be used. For a topping, I used the black olives and mozz. cheese....baked for the last ten minutes. I served this with peas and tossed salad.

We did like this, but even using low-sodium chicken broth it was too salty for us. I would try this again using pinched up old bread and cornbread rather than the Stove Top stuffing mix. Thanks Susie
