      I have been trying for several years now to duplicate my own dad's Thanksgiving sausage stuffing. He passed away before I had a chance to make him write it all down. Each year, I've found a recipe that sounded close, tried it, and they just didn't quite make the grade. Well Terri...this is the one! The only adjustment I made was to add two beaten eggs, because I remember my dad's stuffing as having some sort of binder. I used the giblets and livers for the stock, but did not chop and add them to the stuffing. I did not stuff the bird, but put the stuffing in a large casserole (makes plenty!), and baked for about an hour. Crispy on the top, moist throughout...this was just delicious and something I've been craving for a long time. I can't thank you enough!

      Wonderful! Fantastic! I can't stop eating it. I thought it to be strange adding all that chicken liver, but with out it the recipe would not have been as good. The moisture, the way it holds together and the over all texture and taste make this one a keeper. The best stuffing that I have ever eaten.
