Jessie’s Sausage Dressing

Jessie’s Sausage Dressing

“Growing up, our holiday table was always huge, like 20+ people!  My favorite dish on the table was the “Sausage Stuffing.”  We called it stuffing though we never actually stuffed the bird, so technically it’s dressing.  Though I think sausage stuffing rolls off the tongue better.  Regardless, it’s delicious and should be celebrated year round.  And don’t leave out the fennel, I beg you.”

- Jessie, Lead Copywriter        

Ingredients:
16 cups Sourdough bread cubes, torn
4 tablespoons (½ stick) Unsalted butter
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
2 Yellow onions, diced
2 Celery stalks, diced
2 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled, cored, and diced (or Pears are good too!)
1 Fennel bulb, sliced (save the fronds for stock!)
 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
2 teaspoons Black pepper, freshly ground
2 pounds Hot ground sausage (not Italian, breakfast)
