Ingredients:  
3/4 lbs. sweet Italian sausage (6-8 medium to
large links)
2 medium to large onions
2 large carrots
2/3 bunch of celery
6 large cloves garlic
1-2 loaves medium sized artisan bread with dark
crust
1 cup chicken stock
Grated Asiago or Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Heat skillet on med/high heat. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Remove sausage from casing and break into small pieces placing into heated pan. Saute sausage until brown. Once cooked, remove sausage from pan (leave rendered fat) placing sausage in a large bowl with paper towels to remove excess fat. Add diced onions, carrots, celery, and garlic to pan on medium heat and saute until onions are translucent. (I add the celery last as I like it crisp.) Once the veggies are cooked, remove from pan and place in the same bowl as sausage. Deglaze the pan with chicken stock; scraping any caramelized brown bits from the pan with the end of your spoon. Once deglazed remove pan from heat and set aside. Tear bread into small pieces and place in the bowl with the sausage and veggies. Add enough bread to equal the sausage/veggie mixture. There should be a sausage/veggie 1:1 ratio with the bread. Add grated cheese to season. The goal is not to make it cheesy, but to add another dimension of flavor. Adding deglazed chicken stock is small portions, mix vigorously with hands while crushing bread through the fingers until stuffing becomes moist.

Place stuffing in a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Bake covered about 30 minutes. Stuffing should be heated through. Remove cover and add a sprinkling of grated cheese on top (optional). Cook until top is browned.
