4 cups chicken broth
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks of celery, diced
1 pound mild Italian sausage
1 14-ounce stuffing mix bag
4 hot dog buns, torn into small pieces
1 – 2 eggs, depending on preferred consistency
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Warm the chicken broth in a small sauce pan.
In a large saute pan, melt the butter and add the onions and celery. Saute over medium heat for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened. Transfer the cooked vegetables to a large bowl with the stuffing mix and hot dog buns.
In the same pan, cook the sausage over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until browned and cooked through, breaking up the sausage with a fork while cooking. Transfer the sausage to the bowl with the vegetables, stuffing mix and hot dog buns. Combine thoroughly.
Add the chicken stock and eggs to the mixture, stir well, and pour into a 9 by 12-inch baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes, until browned on top and hot in the middle.
