This is my mother-in-law's recipe for Sausage Stuffing. The greatest thing is the flexibility -- you can add green pepper if that's your thing, you can use different herbs, etc. And when you are making many dishes in the oven for a holiday meal, this dish bakes at whatever temperature you are using and can sit in the oven while everything else finishes if you cover it.

Bread stuffing brings back such wonderful childhood memories for me! That's how my grandmother used to make her stuffing... and for good reason! The bread adds moistness to the stuffing. Add a yummy blend of seasoning, and you've got a super starring side dish!
