-Stuffing is one of those traditional holiday dishes that seems the same year after year. Aunt Mildred brings over her boring dry stuffing that she has been making for the past 40 years. Why not start a new family tradition and make Johnsonville All Natural Italian Sausage Stuffing. You start by browning some Johnsonville ground Italian sausage. Make sure it's cooked all the way through. You don't want any pink in there. Now, I made some bread cubes here but cutting up some bread lightly tossing it in an olive oil, sprinkling some pepper over it. Then putting it in a lightly oiled pan, putting it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until slightly toasted. The flavor of making them from scratch is really going to add the quality of the stuffing. Now, we mix in our Johnsonville sausage. Then, we're going to add parmesan cheese, some cubed green pepper, some chopped sun dried tomatoes, some chopped fresh basil, love having this in the garden all summer, and some minced garlic. Now, we're going to mix all of this together. This is where you get the aroma of those Johnsonville spices mixing in with this all natural ingredients. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite things about this recipe is that the sausages are all natural. Now, once we're done there since we touched the food. Now, I like to add wine, but some people like using chicken broth. We are going to whisk a couple of that, mix it wine, and then this is going to add moisture to our stuffing. So, it's not going to be dry like the old traditional stuff. So Aunt Mildred. Once we've got that mixed up, we're going to put it into our battered baking dish. Gonna spread this out evenly. Oh just look at the colors on this too. It's not only a great tasting dish. It's a good looking dish as well. Even that all out and then we're going to dab the surface of this with little pieces of butter. This is going to give us that nice golden brown color. It's going to look so good on your table, and then we're going to put this in the oven at 350 degrees for about 35 to 40 minutes, and then this is beautiful, looks great, smells great, taste great, all natural Johnsonville Italian Sausage stuff. This is a great new tradition for your family's most important meals of the year. You'll find this recipe, lots of others, and some great cooking tips at johnsonvillekitchens.com
