DD was requesting a sausage corn bread stuffing for Thanksgiving and as I'd never made this type came to Zaar on a search and found this one. So glad I did, it was really nice and everyone loved it. I didn't even know what andouille sausage was so just used a round of bulk then followed the directions exactly after that. Put half of it into the turkey we smoked which came out lovely, moist and with a mild smokey flavor (YUM!!) then the balance put in a casserole dish and baked as directed - very nice too though not quite as moist. I loved the idea of covering with tinfoil that was buttered. It was a success all around so thanks DC for posting.
