I found this recipe in 1999 issue of Southern Living Magazine and make it every year.
Southern Rice Dressing
- 2 garlic bulbs
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 cups cooked regular rice
- 1 recipe Basic Cornbread, crumbled
- 1 (16-ounce) package ground pork sausage
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 medium-size red or green bell pepper, diced
- 1 large carrot, diced
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
- 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 to 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 4 cups chicken broth
- Cut off pointed ends of garlic bulbs; place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil, and drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil to seal.
- Bake at 350° for 45 minutes; cool. Squeeze pulp from garlic cloves into a large bowl. Add rice and cornbread.
- Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain sausage on paper towels, and wipe skillet clean.
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and carrot, and sauté 3 minutes or until tender.
- Stir sausage, vegetables, parsley, and next 4 ingredients into rice mixture. Add broth; stir to moisten. Spoon into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Cover and chill 8 hours, if desired; remove from refrigerator, and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
- Bake, covered, at 350° for 45 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
