The Salty Old Dog’s World Famous Sausage Stuffing

Here is my #1 favorite stuffing.  I can actually say “world famous” as we had a missionary spend Thanksgiving dinner with us and he raved over this stuffing.  I gave him the recipe and he brought it away with him back to the mission fields.  It was then he realized he couldn’t get half the ingredients where he was a missionary.

Ingredients
  • 9 cups of bread cubes (see notes)
  • 2 stalks of celery; chopped with the leaves
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 lb loose Italian sweet sausage (see notes)
  • 1 lb of baby bella mushrooms sliced thick
  • 2 Tbs Bell's Poultry Seasoning
  • ½ cup fresh parsley; minced
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 3 large eggs scrambled
  • 3 cups of chicken stock; preferably home made
Instructions
Day before
  1. Brown the sausage in a skillet
  2. Add the celery and onion and continue to cook until onions are glassy
  3. Put away in the refrigerator until the day of cooking the turkey
Final assembly
  1. Put the bread cubes, sausage mixture, mushrooms and seasonings in a large work bowl.
  2. Add the eggs
  3. Slowly add the stock while mixing the stuffing. You want the bread cubes moist but not sopping wet.
  4. Stuff in the bird's body cavity and roast accordingly
Notes
If for some reason you cannot get loose Italian sausage you can take link sausage and remove the casing. It's a bit of work but worth it.
