1.5 cup salted butter
1 cup diced white onion
1 cup diced celery
24 oz. chicken stock
5 Eggland’s Best Eggs, large
16 oz. tube of uncooked Maple sausage
freshly cracked pepper
2 tbsp. Poultry seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.

- Melt one stick of butter and chicken stock in a saucepan.
- Combine dry stuffing, seasonings, onions, celery, eggs, and sausage in a large mixing bowl.
