Sausage and Bread Stuffing
Sausage and Bread Stuffing
(Ripieno di Salsiccia e Pane)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
2 lbs sweet Italian sausage, casings removed, divided
1 (3/4 to 1-pound) round Italian bread loaf, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 8 cups)
3 medium onions, chopped
4 large celery ribs, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup heavy cream, divided
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (2 ounces)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 350F with rack in middle.

Generously butter a 4-qt shallow ceramic or glass baking dish.

Put bread in 2 shallow baking pans and bake, switching position of pans halfway through baking, until just dried out, about 10 minutes.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers.

Cook half of sausage, stirring and breaking it into small pieces, until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes.

Transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl.

Brown remaining sausage in remaining tablespoon olive oil, transferring to bowl.

Pour off fat from skillet and wipe clean.

Heat butter over medium heat until foam subsides.

Cook onions, celery, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Add vegetables and bread to sausage.

Whisk together eggs, 1/2 cup cream, chicken stock, cheese, and parsley.

Stir into stuffing and cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Reserve 5 cups stuffing to stuff turkey and spoon remainder into baking dish, then drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup cream.

Cover stuffing and chill.

About 1 hour before stuffed turkey is finished roasting, bring dish of stuffing to room temperature.

When turkey is done, increase oven temperature to 425F and bake stuffing, covered tightly with foil, until hot throughout, about 20 minutes.

Remove foil and bake until top is golden and crisp, about 15 minutes more. Makes 8 (side dish) servings.
