THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #56 (THANKSGIVING) and Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing: Thanksgiving Feast 2011

Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing

Today is THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS Linky Party and also I am sharing another recipe for my Thanksgiving Feast 2011. I have to say this is the BEST stuffing recipe I have ever eaten. Once in a while I come across those recipes where, THIS IS IT! This is thee recipe. thee one and only recipe I will ever need. I have had a few of those in my life so far and I can honestly say that I don't even try another recipe for that particular item. I like it, my family likes it and my daughter keeps telling me "if it's not broken, don't fix it". They don't understand why I always have to re-make something, make it in a different way, change it up, etc etc. They are always saying what happened to the way you made it last time. So, anyhow, there are some recipes (very few) that I just like the way I like and I don't bother changing them and this my friends, this stuffing recipe, is that recipe.

Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing
from Food Network Magazine (a long time ago)

1 lb sausage roll (we like Jimmy Dean)
1/2 cup butter
6 celery stalks, finely diced
1 medium onions, finely diced
1 (12 oz) package stuffing (Stove Top with Cranberries)
1 cup additional dried cranberries
1 tsp salt
1 to 1-1/2 cans chicken broth (original recipe calls for 2 cans, but I think it's too wet)

Preheat oven to 325. In a large skillet,, crumble and cook sausage until browned. Remove from pan, and in the same skillet melt butter. Saute' celery and onions until softened, about 5 minutes. In large bowl, combine celery, onions, sausage, stuffing, cranberries and salt. Add the broth and stir until well combined. Place into a casserole dish and cover. Bake at 325 for about 1 hour.
