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

Directions

  2. Place bread cubes in a large bowl; add sausage mixture and toss. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and broth; pour over bread cubes and stir gently to combine. Transfer to two 3-qt. baking dishes coated with cooking spray.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 25, 2010

Its healthy recipes like this that give healthy recipes a bad name. Dry, bland and tasteless.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 22, 2009

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