      Just delicious. I halved the recipe, added an 8oz. pkg. of chopped baby portabellas to the pan with the sauteed onions and celery. Saute for another 5-10 min. Sauteed the chopped gizard, etc. and added to the sausage. I used "50% less fat" sausage and it worked very well. Used 1 1/2 cups of broth, then stuffed the cavity. To the remaining stuffing I added another cup of broth, then put the mixture into silver paper baking cups. Put them into a muffin pan to keep their shape. Baked covered for 15 min.,then uncovered for another 10-12 min. They make a great snack or quick breakfast. Wasn't sure if DH would like the cranberries in his stuffing, but he loved it. In fact, this is the stuffing and dressing recipe that he wants from now on. Thank you.
