Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2002

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped bottled chestnuts
  • 1 (16-ounce) loaf French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 ounces mild pork sausage
  • 3 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Arrange chopped chestnuts and bread cubes in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add onion and celery; sauté 6 minutes or until tender. Add broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.

Combine bread mixture, sausage mixture, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper, tossing to combine. Spoon into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray; cover with foil. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown.
