Step by Step Instructions
1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish with butter. Place the croutons in a large mixing bowl.
2: In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook the sausage until it is browned and cooked all the way through.
3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage (retaining the drippings in the pan) to the bowl with the croutons.
4. To the sausage drippings, add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the onion, celery, garlic, parsley, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper to the pan. Sauté until the onions and celery are tender, and the garlic is fragrant, about 8 to 10 minutes.
5: Transfer the cooked veggies, with all drippings, to a large bowl with the croutons and the sausage.
6: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, and the egg.
7. Pour the mixture over top of the croutons, sausage and vegetables and toss to combine, making sure all the croutons are coated and all the liquid has been evenly absorbed.
8. Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish and bake for 60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy and the center is hot. Garnish with reserved herbs before serving.

Yes! Absolutely. Simply reduce the chicken stock by 1 cup and follow the same step by step directions, but instead of baking it in a casserole dish, stuff it into the turkey and let it cook as the turkey roasts.
