Portugese Style Thanksgiving Stuffing


3/4 pound bacon, diced
1 pound linguica (traditional Portuguese sausage), casings removed and diced
1 large onion, chopped
3/4 cup sliced celery
1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 loaf French bread, cubed and left out overnight
2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large sauté pan, cook bacon until crisp then add linguica. Remove meat and set aside. Skim off half of the oil. Add onion, celery and herbs and sauté for 5 minutes. Add cooked meat and sauté an additional 5 minutes. Stir in bread cubes and chicken broth. Add additional broth until desired consistency. Cook for additional 5 minutes closely to make sure the stuffing doesn’t dry out (if it does, add more broth). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with turkey gravy.

Serves 6

    I have a awesome portugese stuffing mix handed down to me from ex-mother-in law god rest her sole. But the thing is I cant put it into words or measurements the right way. I would love to share with eveyone because its nothing like you,ve ever tasted.
