Butternut Squash & Sausage Stuffing

Butternut Squash & Sausage Stuffing

serves 4-6


6 cups sourdough bread, cut into cubes

1 each butternut squash, peeled, seeded and 1 medium diced

1 lb. Italian sausage links (about 4)

4 tablespoons Mushroom and Sage Olive Oil, divided

1 leek, sliced

2 shallots, peeled and minced

4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

2 cups chicken or turkey broth

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper 2 teaspoons rosemary



Preheat oven to 350°F. Place bread cubes on baking sheets and toast in the oven until crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Place squash and sausages on another baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil. Place in the oven and bake until squash is tender and sausages are cooked through. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing sausages. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add leek, shallots and garlic and sauté until tender and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Place bread cubes, squash, sausages and veggies in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine stock, eggs, salt, pepper and rosemary, whisk to combine. Pour mixture over the other ingredients and toss to combine. Transfer stuffing to a casserole or baking dish and cover with aluminum. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake for another 30 minutes, until topping is crisp.
