Sausage and sage add a gourmet taste to this stuffing. It's perfect for large family gatherings, but you can also save some for later. —Lorraine Brauckhoff, Zolfo Springs, Florida

"I would definitely make this recipe again, although I'd leave out the sausage. My family does not like sausage in their Thanksgiving stuffing."
