Standard Court Chestnut & Sausage Dressing
Stanford Court Hotel Chestnut & Sausage Dressing
This dressing very tasty!
- 1 (1 pounds) loaf French Bread
- 2 tablespoons unsalted Butter
- 1 yellow Onion, chopped
- 1 Celery Stalk, chopped
- 1/2 pound well-seasoned fresh bulk Pork Sausage
- 1/4 pound ground Beef
- 4 cup Milk
- 1 (15 ounces) jar Prepared Fresh Chestnuts
- 3 tablespoons chopped Fresh Parsley
- Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoons chopped fresh Thyme
Tear bread into small chunks, spread out on a baking dish, and let dry overnight.
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees and butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion, and celery, and saute, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes; do not brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve. In the same pan, saute the sausage and beef, stirring and mashing with a fork, until crumbled and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drain off fat.
Place the bread chunks in a large bowl and while tossing, gradually add the milk. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until the milk is absorbed and the bread is evenly moistened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the onion and celery, meat mixture, chestnuts and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, add the thyme, if desired, and mix well. Transfer dressing to baking dish and bake, until browned and crispy.Print Recipe
