ITALIAN BREAD & SAUSAGE STUFFING
This stuffing doesn't stop at bread, sausage and the usual lineup of aromatic vegetables; Marsala, fresh thyme and the optional chopped turkey liver give it deep, rich flavor. For instructions on baking the stuffing, see Stuffed Roast Turkey.

- Pile the bread cubes into a very large bowl and set aside. Set a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the olive oil, half of the sausage, and the chopped turkey liver (if using). Cook, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon or spatula into 1/2- to 1-inch bits, until light brown, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to the bowl of cubed bread; repeat with the remaining sausage. In the fat left in the pan, sauté the onions, celery, and garlic until the onions are translucent and just beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the thyme, sage, salt, and pepper, cook 1 minute, and then add the mixture to the cubed bread.
- With the pan off the heat, carefully pour in the Marsala. Keep your face away from the pan as the wine will sputter. (It's unlikely that Marsala will ignite, but if it does, just back off and let it burn for a few seconds until the alcohol has cooked off.) Set the pan over medium heat and bring the liquid to a boil, stirring to scrape up any flavorful bits in the pan. Boil for 2 minutes and then add the Marsala to the bread mixture; stir until well combined. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
- NOTE: You'll have enough of the stuffing to fill a 12- to 14- pound turkey and a 9×13-inch baking dish. See the corresponding recipe for Stuffed Roast Turkey for instructions on how to prepare and stuff the turkey and how to bake the stuffing.

ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND BREAD STUFFING
Italian sausage and a heap of Parmesan cheese lend signature flair to the easy Thanksgiving dressing recipe.

Yield 8 servings
Number Of Ingredients 14
- Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Generously butter baking dish.
- Put bread in 2 shallow baking pans and bake, switching position of pans halfway through baking, until just dried out, about 10 minutes.
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then cook half of sausage, stirring and breaking it into small pieces, until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl. Brown remaining sausage in remaining tablespoon oil, transferring to bowl.
- Pour off fat from skillet and wipe clean. Heat butter over medium heat until foam subsides, then cook onions, celery, garlic, and ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Add vegetables and bread to sausage.
- Whisk together eggs, ½ cup cream, turkey stock, cheese, and parsley, then stir into stuffing and cool completely, about 30 minutes. Reserve 5 cups stuffing to stuff turkey and spoon remainder into baking dish, then drizzle with remaining ¼ cup cream. Cover stuffing and chill.
- About 1 hour before stuffed turkey is finished roasting, bring dish of stuffing to room temperature. When turkey is done, increase oven temperature to 425°F and bake stuffing, covered tightly with foil, until hot throughout, about 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake until top is golden and crisp, about 15 minutes more.
- Cooks' Note: Bread can be toasted 3 days ahead and kept (once cool) in a sealed bag at room temperature. Stuffing can be prepared (but not baked) 4 hours before roasting turkey. If baking stuffing at the same time as potatoes, put stuffing in upper third of oven and potatoes in bottom third (allow extra time).
BEST EVER ITALIAN SAUSAGE STUFFING
This is truly the Best Ever Italian Sausage Stuffing recipe. It is my mom's treasured family recipe that has been on our table every Thanksgiving. The stuffing includes sausage, onion, celery and fresh herbs. We love the crunchy top and soft and buttery middle.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the cubed bread on a baking sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until dried and toasted. They should be golden brown. Transfer the bread cubes to a very large bowl.
- Add 2 cups of broth (I used vegetable) to a large sauce pan. Heat on medium-low.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Cook the sausages over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until browned and cooked through, breaking up the sausage with a fork while cooking. I didn't find ground sausage so I bought sausage in the casing and removed it from casing before browning it. Use ground sausage if you found it.
- In another skillet, add the other part of oil and butter (I used vegan butter sticks to keep it dairy-free)in medium heat.
- When it is heated up, add the onions, celery, parsley, sage, rosemary or thyme. Add just a dash of salt and pepper, if you like. Saute over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.
- Add the browned sausage, toasted bread to a large bowl. Next, add in the onion mixture.
- Add in one cup of the broth. With a large spoon, gently stir the ingredients together. Add in the whisked egg. Gradually add the remaining broth 1/4 cup at a time until the stuffing is wet. With each addition, gently stir and pat the stuffing ingredients together. Take care not to over mix it, you're just combining it all together. The goal is to have it wet, but not soaked and drippy. You may need the whole 2nd cup of broth and you may need less. You may even need a little bit more than a full 2 cups of broth.
- When the broth is soaked in and combined, spoon the stuffing into a 2qt. baking dish (or 9x12-inch baking dish); then cook for 30-40 minutes, or until it's heated through and golden brown on top. Check it at about 25 minutes and if it seems to be browning too much, cover with foil paper. I baked mine a full 40 minutes. Every oven is different. You may even need to bake it a few minutes longer to get that nice golden brown and have the inside fully heated through.
- Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with additional parsley, then serve.

- Heat a large skillet, add the olive oil, and cook the sausage, stirring and breaking it up until browned, about 8 minutes. Remove to a plate.
- Add the butter to the skillet and when it melts, add the onion and celery. Saute until the onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and sage and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the wine and deglaze the pan, stirring up any browned bits with a wooden spoon.
- Add the cubed bread to the mixture and toast and turn a bit. Stir in the cooked sausage, the chicken broth, and salt to taste and cook for 1 minute. Cool the mixture. (This can be done quickly by spreading the mixture on a rimmed cookie sheet and chilling it in the refrigerator.)
- Stuff the mixture into the cavity and neck of a cooked turkey, or place it in a large buttered baking dish and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until browned on top and heated through.
ITALIAN SAUSAGE STUFFING
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and butter a shallow 3-quart baking dish. Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring and breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned and no longer pink, about 6 minutes.
- Add the celery and onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sage. Add the broth, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper; bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat.
- Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add the parsley, bread cubes and sausage-broth mixture and stir until combined. Transfer the stuffing to the prepared baking dish. Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons butter into small cubes and scatter evenly over the stuffing. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes, then uncover and bake until golden, 20 to 30 more minutes.

- Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a deep 9x13 inch baking dish or roasting pan.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the sausage. Cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Place the browned sausage into a large mixing bowl.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and pancetta in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the pancetta begins to brown, stir in the onions and celery, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook another 3 minutes until the aroma of the garlic mellows.
- Scrape the onion mixture into the bowl with the crumbled sausage. Add the French bread, cornbread, dried sage, poultry seasoning, salt, and pine nuts; stir well. Pour in the chicken broth and mozzarella cheese; stir until the chicken stock has been absorbed by the bread and the stuffing is evenly mixed. Pack the stuffing into the prepared baking dish, and dot the butter overtop. Cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, then remove the foil, and continue baking until the top has turned golden brown, about 15 minutes more. Sprinkle with the fresh sage and shaved Parmesan cheese to serve.

SAUSAGE AND SOURDOUGH STUFFING
Savory stuffing, a classic, and enough for an 8- to 12-pound turkey. Can also be doubled. Also excellent to make in advance and refrigerate until it's time to bake/roast. This recipe came about when I decided to marinate a turkey in salt brine. Most packaged stuffings are too salty to put in a brined turkey. This stuffing is outstanding. Simply scrumptious. My husband, who hates stuffing, loves it.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a baking dish.

- Add bread cubes and turn gently to moisten, being careful not to break them. Add more chicken broth in 1/4-cup increments, if needed. Taste and season with salt and pepper, being careful not to burn yourself. Transfer stuffing to the prepared baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake until golden brown, another 30 minutes.

ITALIAN SAUSAGE STUFFING CASSEROLE
From the folks at the Johnsonsville Sausage company, a highly seasoned unstuffed-stuffing. It's really a one dish meal. The original recipe called for adding a small can (2 1/4 oz) of chopped black olives but I omitted that as we don't care for the taste. Feel free to add it back.

SAUSAGE BREAD DRESSING
My husband and father go crazy for this dressing. Leftovers are rare but they freeze quite well. To save time, chop the veggies and prepare (but don't bake) the dressing up to two days ahead of time and refrigerate. Add a little baking time since it will be cold. -Bette Votral, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
