  • 1 (16 ounce) package ground breakfast sausage

  • 1 cup chopped celery

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 3 cups water

  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 (6 ounce) packages dry bread stuffing mix


  1. Combine sausage, celery, and onion in a skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until sausage is browned and crumbled, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer cooked mixture to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up excess oil.

  2. Pour water into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in butter until melted. Add stuffing mix, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Add cooked sausage mixture and stir to combine.

Cook's Note:

You can use margarine in place of butter.
