Vincent Tekippe
Village of Belvedere
"Most Cajun cooks start with the holy trinity:
chopped onion, green pepper and celery. This
recipe is no exception. It comes from my motherin-law, who never measured or followed a recipe.
We had to guess at this, so we started with her
ingredients and then made it to suit our tastes.
It was originally made with ground beef and
French bread, but by using stuffing mix, we
eliminate the need for seasoning. This dish has a
wonderful flavor and is also pleasing to the eye.
Presentation is important - a good cook knows
how to stimulate all the senses."

dIrectIons
1. Put the chicken broth, water and butter in a large saucepan and
simmer until the butter is melted.
2. Remove from heat, add the packages of stuffing mix and stir
until it is all moistened. Cover and set aside.
3. Heat a large Dutch oven to medium high heat and add the
sausage. As the sausage cooks, chop it with a spatula or wooden
spoon. Continue cooking until the sausage is in fairly small pieces
and is no longer pink.
5. Add the onions, green pepper, celery and garlic and, while
stirring, cook with the sausage until the onions are translucent.
6. Remove from heat and stir in the stuffing mix prepared above.
7. Beat the eggs in a small bowl with a fork, then add some of the
above mixture to temper (warm up) the eggs.
8. Add the egg mixture to the sausage and stuffing mixture and
mix thoroughly.
notes
Use this recipe to stuff a chicken, turkey or pork chops. Put the
remaining stuffing in a greased casserole dish. Smooth the top
before baking in preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour. Leftovers
can be frozen and re-heated. As with most Cajun dishes, it tastes
even better the second time around.
Cajun stuffing also makes a tasty appetizer if you add a little cayenne
pepper and spread it on crackers or use to replace the filling in your
stuffed mushroom recipe, adding a little Parmesan cheese on top.
