Elisa’s Amazing Stuffing

November 24, 2008

**This recipe is always a hit.  My mom said she thought it was a little to greasy so this time I was more careful with what I was adding and I am editing to reflect that.

**I like to make this in an electric skillet to free up stove space and to give it a place to stay warm.

1 1/2 to 2 loaves of bread (I used a mixture of sourdough and french bread)
cubed and toasted in the  oven at 350 for 10-15 min until slightly golden
and crisp/dried out like a crouton

1/4 c.  butter
1 large yellow or white onion chopped
1 package Jimmy Dean reduced fat sausage
1 stalk celery chopped
1 package craisins
1 Tablespoon Poultry Seasoning(or to taste)
2 teaspoons salt
1 box chicken broth

In a large pan heat the butter and chopped onion and celery until the onion is translucent. Add sausage and cook until crumbled into small pieces.  Add craisins, poultry seasoning, and salt–cook for another 5 min. Add croutons and stir constantly for about 3 mins or until coated with all pan juices.  Add chicken broth a little at a time and stirring in to coating all croutons.  Continue adding chicken broth and letting croutons absorb liquid.  Turn heat to low and rest for atleast 10 minutes.
