Emeril Lagasse's Spicy Sausage Dressing Recipe
DirectionsTotal time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a 9" x 13" dish with oil, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, broth and eggs. Add bread, mix well, and set aside until milk is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage and beef, breaking meat apart with a spoon, until browned throughout, about 10 minutes. Add oil, garlic, celery, bay leaf, bell pepper, onion, salt, red pepper flakes and black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes; remove and discard bay leaf.
Transfer meat mixture to bowl with bread, add parsley, and stir to combine. Transfer to prepared dish, spread out evenly, and bake until deep golden brown on top, about 1 hour. (Cover with foil after 45 minutes if top starts to burn before dressing is fully cooked.)
