Dressed Up Dressing… My family likes the Basic Dressing recipe for our Thanksgiving meal. But, if your family is a little more adventurous you can add dried cranberries, chopped dried apricots or chopped mushroom, as pictured, for the Dressed Up Dressing version.

Instructions
  1. Put bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. Set aside. Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large sauce pan. Add sausage and cook for 5 minutes. While browning sausage, break up into small pieces. Add onion, celery and seasonings. Cook 5 minutes more. Stir in apricots and cranberries and 1/2 cup of the broth.
  2. Heat remaining broth and remaining butter in a sauce pan until butter has melted. Combine bread cubes and sausage mixture. Add hot broth to mixture and toss until well combined. Place in a casserole dish and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
Recipe Notes

This dressing can be made, baked and reheated (covered) in a 300° oven before serving. For my Thanksgiving dinner, I place the dressing in a large piece of heavy duty foil and form the mixture into a long roll like a meatloaf and roll up and seal. I then can fit it in the side of my oven along side other dishes while heating the dressing up for dinner. It saves a great deal of oven space.
