Sensational Bratwurst Dressing

I love to look for a new recipe to try for our holiday dinner. Thanksgiving is a really great time to try a new dish because there is plenty of food. Even better when one recipe turns into a tradition because it is such a favorite.

A few years back we were turned onto Brats. Bratwurst sausages are full of flavor and we all enjoy them especially in the summer on the grill. I have heard of sausage stuffing for forever, but I was curious to see if our delicious little sausages would work well as a stuffing. I took this bratwurst dressing to a thanksgiving dinner several years ago and there was little left. It was a definite hit.

This dressing works well as a side, or as a meal. It’s up to you.

I call this a dressing because it is wetter then a stuffing. I create the whole dish, then bake it off in a pan.

What you’ll need…

1 large onion chopped

1 bunch of celery chopped- I use about 10 stalks.

chicken stock- 1 1/2 cups

8 bratwurst sausages

3 tablespoons poultry seasoning

3/4 loaf of bread- toasted or staled, cubed ( not shown)

First I use half a stick of butter to soften my celery and onion.

As soon as the butter has melted, add in your poultry seasoning.

Once the veggies are just beginning to soften, pull them out of the pan and put them aside.

Remove the sausage casing and tear them into pieces, and put them into the pan to brown.

Cook until the sausage is done.

Add the veggies back to the sausage.

Then add your chicken stock. I use chicken base, but you can also use canned stock or fresh homemade stock. Just whatever you have on hand.

Add your bread cubes and mix lightly, so not to crush or mangle your bread cubes, but making sure everything is well combined.

Now add it to your pretty baking dish.

At this point, you can cover it and keep it for a couple days in the fridge.

( Don’t you loooooovvveeeee dishes you can make ahead for a big day like Thanksgiving?)

When you are ready for serving, put this in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until hot and browned on top.
