2 packs of Butcher & the Boar® Butcher Brats or Smoked Spice Wurst, diced

Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and fry until browned. Add the onion, celery and garlic. Continue cooking, stirring until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the bread cubes with the herbs and seasonings. Add the sausage, vegetables and lemon zest. Stir in the chicken broth until well moistened, but not mushy.
Pack into a baking dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove foil and broil for 4 minutes, or until browned on top.
