I know we are all in shock that Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Can you believe it?!?
This week I wanted to share one of the most delicious recipes that I have learned from my husband, his mother’s cookbook to be exact (http://www.lulu.com/content/4754256). It is the most delicious stuffing that I have ever eaten! I will actually be baking it and bringing it this year to my mom’s Thanksgiving dinner. Can’t wait!
3 lbs sausage 1 loaf Italian bread
fresh parsley – chopped, use to taste (not too much)
1 clove garlic – minced
1 16 oz package of mozzarella, cut into small cubes
grated Parmesan – to taste
salt – to taste
pepper – very little
2 eggs, beaten
Heat large pan. Add a little oil. Remove sausage from casing and crumble into pan. Saute sausage until cooked, about 15 minutes. There shouldn’t be any liquid left in the pan.
Cut off the crust from bread and soak in warm water. Remove from water and squeeze out water. In a large bowl, add sausage, bread, parsley, garlic, mozzarella, Parmesan, salt and pepper. Mix well with hands.
Just before stuffing bird, or baking in dish, add and mix in the eggs. (The stuffing must be completely cooled before adding the eggs. If the stuffing is made ahead of time, do not add the eggs until ready to use/bake.)
Bake for approximately 1 hour or until heated through.
