I'm posting this recipe at my son, James', request. He said that he could eat this three times a day! I think the original recipe was from " Southern Living" magazine, many years ago, but I've modified it to suit our tastes.. This recipe can be made a day in advance, refrigerated until it's time to be heated ( allow for additional cooking time ), and doubles well.This has been a staple at our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for many years years.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Brown the sausage meat in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking meat up into small pieces as it cooks.
  2. Drain cooked sausage (I drain it in a colander and then run hot water over the meat to remove as much fat as possible) and remove meat to a large bowl.
  3. Add the butter to the skillet and melt over medium heat.
  4. Add onions and celery to skillet and cook, covered, until onions and celery are cooked through, stirring occasionally.
  5. Combine cooked vegetables, sausage,parsley,stuffing mix,and spices in the large bowl, stir in the beaten eggs and chicken broth and mix well.
  6. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and fill with dressing mixture.
  7. Cover and bake for one hour in a preheated 350 degree oven.
  8. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, to lightly brown top of dressing.
  9. A cake tester or knife inserted should come out"clean" when the dressing is done.

Loved it, a bit dry tho. but will certainkly make it again. Next time will probably adjust the broth a bit. I believe the reason is that the different brands of dry mix require different amounts of liquid. Very tasty. thanks

Thanks for the post Mom, last Thanksgiving I made this and everyone loved it. If I don't make it home this year, I'm sure I'll be making it again this year.
