don't miss this deliciousness


tonight is our neighborhood thanksgiving potluck and food drive.
it is one of my favorite neighborhood activities, and since it is thanksgiving i am (of course) making my mom's stuffing. 
it is delicious -
and yes, i am biased, 
but if you are going to eat highly caloric carb-y goodness, this is your dish.

if you are not into sausage or are a vegetarian, use sauteed mushrooms instead, 
and substitute veggie broth for the chicken.

you can easily double or triple this for loads of guests.

cornelia's stuffing
(you can adjust ratios to taste- 
ie, add more liquid to make stuffing more moist or 
add more sausage because it is more delicious)
  • 1 1/2 loaves white or wheat bread (i buy the cheapest store brand bread)
  • one onion, chopped
  • 5-7 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 pound mild italian sausage 
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBS Bells poultry seasoning
  • 2-3 bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup warm water OR same amount chicken broth 
  • cooking spray 
directions:
  • cube bread into large bowl
  • saute onion & celery and set aside (or dump over cubed bread)
  • remove sausage from casing unless bulk sausage & saute/crumble
  • add crumbled sausage to bread, onion and celery
  • combine 1 cup milk, egg & poultry seasoning. pour over stuffing and mix until well distributed 
  • pour broth or bouillon/water mixture over stuffing. (add water or more broth if desired to make more moist)
  • Put in greased baking pan or stuff into a turkey. if in a pan, bake at 350 for 20 minutes covered, then bake 20 more minutes uncovered.
Yum! Enjoy! 
Best with gravy and shared around a table

  1. If my Thanksgiving consisted of nothing but (my mom's) stuffing and gravy I would be satisfied. Due to nursing a baby with a troublesome digestive system we are tomorrow making practice dairy/soy/egg free stuffing (and praying nobody tells me I need to also give up wheat in the next week).
