Yankee Bread Stuffing

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 stalks chopped celery
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 (1 pound) loaves day-old white bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sage seasoning mixture
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  • Place pork sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the celery and onions in the saucepan, and slowly cook and stir until tender.
  • Mix together the sausage, celery, onions, bread, sage, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • Pour the eggs and chicken broth into the mixture. Use more broth if needed. The stuffing should be moist, not mushy.
  • Press the mixture into the baking dish. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top is brown and crisp.
