Fresh herbs give this stuffing a more robust flavor, while the shallots, apples, and celery get caramelized in a white wine glaze.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb turkey sage breakfast sausage
  • 4 Tbs butter, divided
  • 4 shallots, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 cup portabella mushrooms, diced
  • 2 Tbs fresh thyme
  • 3 Tbs fresh sage, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 loaf whole wheat sourdough bread, stale and diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until no longer pink; about 10 minutes. Drain fat and set aside.
  • In the same skillet melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add shallots, garlic, celery, apple and mushrooms and sauté until tender. Sprinkle with thyme and sage.
  • Pour white wine over vegetables and deglaze the pan. Sauté for another 2 minutes to cook off the alcohol.
  • In a large bowl, combine sausage, vegetable mixture, 2 tablespoons of butter, and bread. Pour chicken broth over stuffing, stirring well to evenly coat the bread pieces. You want the bread to be moist but not soggy.
  • Place stuffing in a 9×13 inch casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes and remove foil.
  • Dot the top with the remaining tablespoon of butter and bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes until the top has browned.
  • Serve immediately.
