The Best Stuffing

The Best Stuffing really lives up to its name! It combines delicious ingredients like sausage, white wine and mushrooms with stale white bread to make a rich and tasty Thanksgiving dinner accompaniment. I use white bread for this recipe, but you can use your favorite type of bread. 

I start by cooking sausage in a skillet with olive oil. Add some wine to deglaze the pan and add some butter and mushrooms and cook them until brown. Continue by adding celery, onions, sage and thyme and cook until tender. Pour in the broth and simmer. Whisk eggs and parsley in a separate bowl and add bread cubes and toss. Add the cooked sausage and mushrooms and toss together. Add the vegetables and broth and mix again. Transfer the stuffing to a baking dish and bake until golden. Garnish with celery leaves before serving. 

To make The Best Stuffing, you will need the following ingredients:
