I made this for Thanksgiving this year and everyone raved about it. I did not have the Bob Evans sage sausage on hadn, so I used a pound of hot sausage I had and the results were very good. This is probably because the stuffing I used was seasoned with sage. I used the shredded stuffing, not the cubes, and I think this made the dish better. I did not have a turkey to stuff (we had a turkey breast), so I just made this in a glass casserole dish. I even made it the day ahead and stored it in the frig until it was time to bake it. A very good and easy recipe, it will be a family favorite of ours for several years!

This recipie is relatively basic but went from good to amazing with day old Italian bread with the chopped onions & celery..then added sage etc. Pre-packaged bread stuffing simply can't beat the real stuff. I also moistened the stuffing with some white can also use chicken stock or orange juice, then frozen and or fresh cranberries. The Evans sausage is wonderful and a keeper. I also threw in a couple of chopped apples...ahhh wonderful!!!

We had this for Christmas last year, and I'm pulling it out again for Thanksgiving. I love the contrast of the sausage and cranberries. I usually make this the night before, then just pop it in the oven.

OK Folks. I made this last year but substituted 1 can of chicken broth with 1.5 cups white wine and used a roll of Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage. Followed everything else as directed. WAS THE BEST STUFFING MY FAMILY AND I EVER HAD!! We all loved it!

This was a big hit on Thanksgiving! stuffed the bird with it and had enough left over to cook as a caserole. A keeper, will be making this again!! I had Jimmy Dean mild sausage and I just added some sage and a bit of pultry seasoning when I cooked it.

this was awesome i used it with a pork roast and served it on the side. i am not a big fan of cranberry's but it tasted better then i anticipated. everyone loved it and that was from 20 people since it was for my brothers going away party. thanks this is a definate. in stead of the stuffing ina box, i made a corn bread stuffing (better for my son to eat since he can't have milk, so made the corn bread with rice milk instead. no one knew it was made with rice milk.
