Ingredients

  • 1 Pound lean ground turkey sausage
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 Cup chopped onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Cups chopped cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 Cup chopped summer squash, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 Teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3 Teaspoons dried sage
  • 3 Teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 Teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Break sausage up into a skillet. Put skillet over medium heat, add the celery and cook, stirring often, until the celery starts to get a little soft, then add onion and cook, stirring often, until the onion gets soft.

Continue cooking, stirring often, until the sausage is totally cooked through.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then add the cooked sausage mixture to the bowl, mix eggs into meat, then add remaining ingredients and mix together until blended.

Turn into a small casserole dish, cover, and put in preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. 

Check, and if it's too moist, uncover and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until edges start to brown.

Sausage Stuffing Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage Stuffing Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
