Move over standard bread stuffing, this weight-loss-friendly side dish is incredible. The rich flavour of the sausage combined with the roasted cauliflower and just the right seasoning perfectly complements a thanksgiving day turkey dinner.
1 large head cauliflower, cut into small bite-size pieces
3 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, divided
2 tablespoon salted butter
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
16 oz. Jimmy Dean bulk sausage, sage flavored*
¼ cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Place cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat. Sprinkle with ½ tsp. poultry seasoning; toss to coat.
Spread cauliflower evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet (this will need to be done in batches; or use 2 baking sheets). Bake 30 minutes turning cauliflower halfway through.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, salt and pepper; stir fry 5 minutes or until onion is lightly caramelized. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Add sausage to same skillet used for onion mixture; sprinkle with ½ tsp. poultry seasoning. Brown over medium heat until cooked through; drain, if necessary.
Fold roasted cauliflower and onion mixture into cooked sausage; heat through.
Transfer stuffing to a large serving bowl. Season with additional salt and pepper (to taste), and sprinkle with chopped pecans.
Tip: If sage flavored sausage is unavailable, add 1 tsp. dried sage to plain bulk sausage when browning.
