This is my mother-in-law's recipe for traditional bread stuffing. Bread, pork and seasonings blend to create a perfect filling for the holiday bird. Use more bread if needed to create a stuffing that's moist, but not mushy.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 pound ground pork sausage
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 6 stalks chopped celery
- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 (1 pound) loaves day-old white bread, torn into small pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sage seasoning mixture
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup chicken broth
Place pork sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the celery and onions in the saucepan, and slowly cook and stir until tender.
In a large bowl, place the sausage, celery, onions, bread, sage, salt and pepper.
Beat the eggs in small bowl and mix into the sausage mixture.
Pour broth into the mixture. Use more broth if needed. The stuffing should be moist, not mushy.
