Thanksgiving Stuffing

Compliments of CalGal.......................I have adapted my grandmother's recipe.

2-3 packages of Pepperidge Farms seasoned Cubed stuffing Mix.

1 onion

a package of Jimmy Dean sage sausage (comes in a tube-like container)

2 sticks melted margarine ( I have just started diet kind, and it was just as good!)

about 5 cups of Swanson chicken broth

The day before, I chop and brown the onion, drain it, and put in covered dish. Then I brown the sausage, drain and also set it aside in a bowl and refridgerate both sausage and onion.

Thanksgiving day, I put the stuffing mix into a huge soup pot, Melt the margarine and add it to the mix, then add the chicken broth, pre-cooked onion and sausage, and stir it all up. No additional spices are needed.

I stuff the turkey with a good portion of the stuffing, then put what is left over into a greased covered casserole dish. When I take the turkey out of the oven and let it set before carving (to set the juices a bit) I pop the casserole dish into the oven and heat at 350 degrees for about half an hour. When we take the stuffing out of the turkey, we will mix it into what is in the casserole, and the consistency is perfect. My family will not let me make any other recipe, as they love this one so much.
