Italian Dressing with Sausage

After andouille, Italian sausage is my second favorite. Here's a dressing featuring Italian sausage.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped celery, including leafy tops

1 cup choped red bell pepper

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 pound mild Italian sausage, casing removed

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Creole seasoning to taste

7 cups bread cubes, preferably from day-old crusty Italian bread

1/4 pound grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 sticks butter, melted

2 cup chicken stock

Preheat oven to 375℉.

Warm olive oilin large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring from time to time, until softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add sausage and cook, chopping sausage with a wooden spoon, until it is crumbly and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Add Italian seasoning and Creole seasoning.

Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add bread and Parmesan. Drizzle with melted butter and mix well. Add enough chicken stock as needed to achieve a very moist but not soupy consistency; taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

Transfer to a buttered 10x13-inch baking dish and bake until heated through and beginning to brown on top, 20 to 30 minutes.
