    Sausage Cranberry Dressing

    Ingredients:
    6 cups bread croutons made from white and wheat bread (see Instructions)
    1 pound sausage, browned, drained and crumbled
    1/4 cup freshly chopped sage or 1/8 cup dried sage
    2/3 cups chicken stock
    3/4 cup dried sweet cranberries
    1/2 cup toasted pecan halves and pieces
    1/4 cup diced celery
    1/2 cup diced onion
    extra virgin olive oil
    salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste

    Instructions:
    Stack the bread and cut into 1/2 inch cubes and place bread cubs into a large bowl. Drizzle enough olive oil onto the bread to lightly coat. Place fresh or dried sage into bowl with bread cubes; sprinkle with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Spread bread cubes out on a cookie sheet and place into a 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until bread pieces have dried out and become golden. Remove from oven and allow bread to cool.

    Place cooled bread cubes into a large bowl and add the crumbled sausage, cranberries, toasted pecans, celery and onions; toss to incorporate all ingredients. Pour chicken stock over stuffing and place stuffing into an oven proof casserole dish and cover with aluminum foil.
    Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

    Well, so much for another Thanksgiving! Once again I will be with my brothers and sisters in orange making sure that the holidays are safe and that everyone gets to and from grandma's house safely. We are expecting a load of white stuff from now till the weekend in this area. If all of you just take a moment to raise your glass to the people who keep it safe for the rest of us, the firemen, the police, the road crews, the utility workers that have to respond to broken poles and whatever I would greatly appreciate that moment. And lets not forget our military. We have so much to truly be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless America!
