Sage Dressing (1)

1/2 lb. sausage

1 medium onion, chopped

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped

2 tsp. vegetable oil

6 cups day-old bread, cubed

1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup parsley, minced

2 eggs, beaten

2 tsp. rubbed sage

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Use a big skillet. Cook sausage, onion, celery and mushrooms in oil until the meat isn’t pink. Mix with everything else in a large bowl. Place in a 7" X 11" greased baking pan, cover and bake at 350º for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes more or until lightly browned. Serves 6.

This makes a wonderful dressing. I use Turkey sausage to make it and it gets rave reviews. It goes well with barbecued chicken too!
