Uncle Jay's Celery & Sausage Stuffing

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year! And this stuffing makes it even better!





I like having unique meals and twists on Holiday food, but for me, the traditional Thanksgiving feast is the only way to go. This stuffing is traditional, but adds some flare and most taste than the average stuffing. Here's how you make it:


Ingredients:

2 bushels of celery

1 sweet onion

1 lb sausage

1/2 stick butter

5 1/2 cups water

6 oz Sage and Onion Pepperidge Farm dry stuffing mix

6 oz Herb Seasoned Pepperidge Farm dry stuffing mix

Celery Salt 1 tablespoon

Rubbed Sage 1 teaspoon

Ground Sage 1 teaspoon

Garlic Powder 1/2 teaspoon

Onion Powder 1/2 teaspoon

Cracked pepper to taste

Pinch of Italian Seasoning

Turkey Giblets


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350

Chop celery and onion and cook in deep skillet over medium heat and add in celery salt, sage, garlic powder, onion powder, cracked pepper, and Italian seasoning.

As celery/onion mixture cooks, brown sausage in a second skillet

Combine turkey giblets, 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 cup hot water in a bullet/blender and blend to a paste

Move celery/onion mixture to a large bowl and stir in dry stuffing mix and sausage

In a small pot, combine 3 tablespoons of butter and 5 cups of water and cook until melted

Add giblet paste and water/butter into bowl and mix well

Place stuffing in glass pyrex and bake for 30 minutes at 350. You can also place stuffing into turkey and bake.


Enjoy!
