"I actually made this for Thanksgiving instead of stuffing the turkey, but used the hot pork sausage. I made it ahead of time and put it in the crockpot. Everyone loved it. Will definitely do this again."

"My husband and I were alone for Thanksgiving so I used this recipe. We thought it was great! I only used 1/2# sausage and it was plenty. I think a pound would have been too much. I've already emailed it to my 4 sisters and I will make it again."

"It was excellent, so thanks Jennifer Lynn! I have often used a boxed stuffing mix and added 'goodies' to it when I was in a hurry. It always turned out great, and everyone loved it. Thank goodness for the 'shortcuts' which are available to us today. We loved this stuffing!"

"This is delicious. I used hot sausage because that's what I had on hand. It's so easy to make. The second time I made it I used it as a stuffing for large mushrooms. They disappeared rapidly."

"I Tried out this Recipe for Thanksgiving this Year. However, After sauteing the sausage, onions, mushrooms, garlic & sage, I then added a little Pinoit Noir, actually (Pinoit Evil) for a wonderful dash of taste. Then followed through with the rest of the Recipe. It was Delicious!... ; )"

"I used a roll of hot, spicy sausage and a box of sage stuffing mix. I generally dislike stuffing or dressing, and have been known to call it "wet bread". My husband and I both liked this recipe, and decided it was a "keeper"."
