Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook sausage, celery and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Remove from heat; stir in mayonnaise, mustard, sage and poultry seasoning.
  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.

Bake until a thermometer inserted in center of stuffing reads 165° and thermometer inserted in poultry thigh reads 180°. Allow 3/4 cup stuffing per pound of turkey. Bake remaining stuffing as directed in recipe.
