  • 1 lb bulk ground sausage
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion , chopped
  • 4 ribs celery , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary, thyme and sage
  • 5 cups dried stuffing bread cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken or turkey broth , warm


Step 1

Brown sausage in skillet over medium high heat until cooked all the way through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Step 2

Add butter, onions, celery, garlic, and herbs to skillet and cook till veggies are softened, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Return sausage to pan along with bread cubes and gently toss. Pour warm broth over the whole skillet, trying to moisten as many bread cubes as possible as you pour. Toss very gently.

Step 4

Cover skillet and let sit for 15-20 minutes to let the bread cubes soak up the broth.
(Optional) Place skillet under the broiler for 2-4 minutes to brown the top of the stuffing. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn.
