Romesco Sausage Stuffing
This spicy and flavorful recipe elevates your stuffing to the next level, making for the perfect holiday side dish.
1 tablespoon olive oil
¾ lb. seasoned sausage, removed from casing
1 cup diced Vidalia onion
1 leek, cleaned and thinly sliced
1 yellow pepper, seeded and diced
3 tablespoons butter, divided
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
1 jar Almond and Garlic Romesco Sauce
3 cups chicken stock
1 loaf of challah, cubed into 1x1 inch pieces (day old is best)
Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large frying pan, add olive oil and sausage. Break sausage into bite size chunks, using a wooden spatula and sauté 4-5 minutes on medium high until the sausage is browned. Remove to a bowl.
Next, add the onion, leek, yellow pepper and butter to the pan. Saute another 4 minutes on medium-high until the onions have turned translucent and the pepper has softened. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper and then stir in the thyme, romesco and 1 cup of the chicken stock. Add the breadcrumbs and continue to add stock, stirring until all the stuffing is moistened.
Butter a large casserole dish with 1 tablespoon of butter and fill with your stuffing mixture. Dot the stuffing with the remaining butter and bake 30 minutes until the top has browned. Serve warm.
