Sausage Stuffing Recipe

I was pulling together my recipes for Christmas Day and thought I would share a couple with you. The first one is a classic and very easy sausage stuffing mix:

1/2 pound ground sausage
1 large pkg. herb stuffing mix
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1-2 cups chicken broth
(Note: I also like to add 1/2 cup of cooked, chopped turkey giblets)

Cook sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat in about 1/2 cup of water; drain. In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients, except for the chicken broth. Next, add the broth a little at a time (starting with a 1/4 cup) until the dressing mixture is moist – not soaking wet, just moist. Now you can either stuff your turkey with the dressing and bake according the roasting directions, or put the dressing in a casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes until top is nicely browned. This recipe can easily be doubled for large turkeys and hungry people.
