This dressing has been in my husbands family for years.
12 oz. package herb stuffing mix
1 large onion, chopped
1 – 1 1/2 C chopped celery
1/2 roll of regular ground sausage, like Jimmy Deans
2-4 Tbsp. butter, depending on how much grease is is left behind after browning the sausage
1/2 tsp. allspice seasoning
1 tsp sage
1 1/2 C ground brazil nuts ( I used a food processor. My husband used a meat grinder growing up. Whichever is fine)
2 C chicken broth, or more if you like more moist stuffing
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 9×13.
2. In a skillet, begin to brown the sausage. When partially browned, add butter, onion and celery. Cook until sausage is cooked and vegetables are tender.
3. In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix, nuts, allspice and sage. Add broth and sausage mixture. Taste the mixture and adjust seasonings as needed.
4. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes or until mixture is hot.
