If you like, this recipe can be made vegetarian as well, just leave out the sausage and use vegetable stock instead!

Brown Sausage & Sauté Vegetables

In a medium or large pan, cook sausage on medium-high heat until sausage is browned and crumbled, using a spatula to break up the meat. Drain, place in bowl, and set aside. 

In the same pan, sauté diced onions, celery, and mushrooms (if using) in butter over low to medium heat until soft. 

Cooked sausage for stuffing

Add Croutonz, Broth, & Other Desired Ingredients

Turn heat down to low.

Add cooked sausage, Croutonz, poultry seasoning or fresh herbs, toasted nuts, 1 cup of your stock or broth, salt and pepper into the pan with sautéed vegetables. 

Toss well, and let rest for 10 minutes, tossing occasionally.

After the 10 minutes is up, add the ¾ cup broth/egg mixture, and any other desired add-ins. 

Add more stock if a moister stuffing is preferred.

Notes

We don't recommend cooking this stuffing in a turkey. When cooked in a pan it has a much better crusty surface and nice texture.
 
This stuffing can be made ahead and refrigerated! 
It can be gently reheated at 300 while covered. Remove cover for last 5 min
