Ingredients:

2 cups (¼-inch) diced yellow squash

2 cups (¼-inch) diced zucchini

½ pound ground pork breakfast sausage, browned, drained and ¼ cup fat reserved

2 tbsps butter

1 cup minced onions

½ cup minced celery

¼ cup minced red bell pepper

¼ cup minced yellow bell pepper

2 tbsps minced garlic

¾ cup chicken stock

1 (8.5-ounce) package Jiffy® corn muffin mix, baked and crumbled

2 eggs, beaten

salt and black pepper to taste

granulated garlic to taste

Method:

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large sauté pan, melt butter with reserved sausage fat over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, bell peppers and minced garlic. Sauté 3–5 minutes or until vegetables are wilted. Add squash and zucchini then sauté 2–3 minutes or until fork-tender, adding chicken stock as needed to keep moist. Add cooked sausage and blend well into squash mixture. Spoon cooked squash mixture into a large mixing bowl and add crumbled corn muffin, stirring to combine ingredients well. Blend in eggs, stirring quickly to keep eggs from cooking. Season to taste using salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Additional stock may be needed to keep moist. NOTE: Dressing should be moist but not wet prior to baking. Transfer contents into an 8" x 8" casserole dish and bake uncovered 30–35 minutes or until heated thoroughly and browned around edges.
