  1            pound  Italian sausage -- hot

  8            tablespoons  butter

  2            each  onion -- coarsely chopped

  2            each  celery ribs -- coarsely chopped

  1            tablespoon  sage

  1            tablespoon  thyme

  2            teaspoons  salt

  1            teaspoon  white pepper

  3            cups  turkey stock

  2            each  eggs

 ¼            cup  fresh parsley -- chopped fine

  12         cups  bread stuffing cubes


In a large saucepan cook the sausage over medium high heat, breaking into small pieces with a spoon, until cooked thoroughly. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer it to a large bowl. Meanwhile, add 6 tablespoons butter, onions, and celery to the saucepan and cook over medium high heat, stirring, until tender. Season with sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Add turkey broth and bring to a simmer. Beat eggs with parsley in a bowl. Begin combining sausage, bread stuffing cubes, egg mixture, then gradually add vegetable broth mixture and toss. Transfer to a butter baking dish and dot with butter. Cover and bake at 375°F for 30-minutes; uncover and bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Makes about 14 cups, or enough for a 20-pound turkey with some left over.
