A Recipe, A Little Too Late


Hello out there! I didn't intend to take such a long blogging break over the holidays but it just kind of worked out that way. I hope that you all had a lovely end to December and a great beginning to the New Year. We were able to get out of the city for awhile to some warmer weather, celebrate with family, and then ring in the husband's 30th bday with friends. Many more details to come but for now I wanted to share a new recipe that my Mom tested out on Christmas day - sausage and cranberry stuffing. I thought it sounded gross at first but it was seriously so good, definitely a new holiday staple. And I realize I am sharing holiday recipes after the season is over, but now you'll have it for next year! Here are the details:

1 pkg. (16 oz.) Sausage
1/2 cup butter
6 celery stalks, finely diced
2 medium onions, finely diced
1 pkg. (12 oz.) herb flavor stuffing mix
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp. salt
2 cans (14.5 oz. each) chicken broth

Preheat oven to 325F. In large skillet, crumble and cook sausage until browned. Remove from pan. In same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté celery and onions until softened, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine celery, onions, sausage, stuffing mix, cranberries and salt. Add the broth and stir until well mixed. If desired, loosely stuff some of the mixture into a turkey just before roasting. Place the rest of the stuffing mix into a casserole dish. Cover and bake at 325F for 1 hour or until hot.
