"This is my Grandmom's recipe - she taught me when I was small how to make it. I guess that makes it a family recipe, although I have changed it a little to fit my style of cooking. You may decide to change something or leave it. Enjoy!!! Has cranberries and nuts in it too!"

  2. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and cool.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. In a medium baking dish, mix cranberries, sausage, bread cubes, dry bread crumbs, onion, and garlic. Season with parsley, oregano, sage, thyme, celery seed, ground ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir in chicken broth to desired consistency. Mix in walnuts and orange.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until surface is crisp and lightly browned.

Didn't really like it. Not sweet enough. The cranberries made it really sour. It was too chunky after everything was put together. Probably won't make this again without tweeking it quite a bit.

Made this for a large group so I doubled the recipe. Used 1 lb spicy sausage, 1 lb maple mild to switch up the taste. Added 2 chopped apples, omitted the orange, and tossed in a few currants/rai...

this recipe was AMAZING until I put in the chicken broth and baked it. It is amazing just mixing all the ingredients (minus broth) together by hand. I will make this again on Christmas. Also, I ...
