Sausage and Herb Stuffing

I have made this stuffing and everybody loved it. Just don't tell
anybody what it is and they will never suspect.

This is from Chef George Stella of Food Network.

Sausage and Herb Stuffing (Level 1)

Stuffing is commonly made with bread or croutons, which makes it off
limits to low-carbers. But it doesn't have to be made that way.
There's nothing wrong and everything right with substituting chopped
vegetables to make up the missing bulk. So don't get stuffed. Try this
recipe instead of all that bread!

Prep Time:15 minInactive Prep Time: hr minCook Time:35 min
8 servings

3/4 pound turkey sausage (you may use pork breakfast sausage)
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 eggs
2 cups coarsely chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup diced yellow squash
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves
3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Equipment: 8 by 8-inch square baking dish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove sausage from casing and crumble it into a pan over medium heat.
Add the celery and onion and cook, stirring, until browned. Drain fat
if necessary.

Beat the eggs in a bowl. Using a spoon, mix in the sausage mixture and
all the remaining ingredients. Pour the stuffing into the baking dish
and bake until hot and browned, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
