Recipe: Un-Stuffing


1 sweet Italian sausage
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 an onion, diced
1 cup celery, sliced thin
1 tsp. dried sage
1 tsp. salt
3-4 cups diced day old bread
1/2 cup broth or milk


Crumble and cook sausage. Reserve. In the same pan, sauté the onion and celery in oil two minutes.  Add sage and salt.  Turn heat very low and add the bread, tossing to coat with the oil.  Add sufficient stock to moisten the dressing very lightly - you want the bread to soften and stick together just a little bit, but not to be gummy. Add sausage, mix, and place in greased casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant.
