Parmesan Cheese and Italian Sausage Stuffing
Ingredients
6
cups ciabatta bread torn into bite-size pieces
12
ounces bulk mild Italian sausage
1/2
cup chopped celery
2
teaspoons snipped fresh thyme
1
teaspoon snipped fresh sage
1/2
teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
2
tablespoons olive oil
1
egg, lightly beaten
1/2
cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (2 ounces)
1/4
cup dried currants
2
tablespoons snipped fresh Italian ( flat-leaf) parsley
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2
cup chicken broth
 
Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish; set aside. Spread bread pieces evenly in an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until bread is dry, stirring once. Transfer to a very large bowl; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until brown. Drain off fat. Transfer sausage to the bowl.
  3. In the same skillet, cook onion, celery, thyme, sage, and rosemary in hot oil over medium-high heat until onion and celery are tender. Transfer onion mixture to the bowl. Stir in egg, the 1/2 cup cheese, the currants, parsley, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with enough of the broth to moisten, tossing gently to combine.
  4. Transfer bread mixture to the prepared baking dish.* Cover and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with additional cheese. Makes 8 servings.
