This is one where you have to close your eyes and not think about the calories: it's rich and delicious and much-anticipated at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix bread crumbs and wild rice in a large bowl.
  2. Saute celery and onions in butter; add to crumbs.
  3. Fry sausage; add to crumbs.
  4. Pour chicken broth and melted butter over all and mix thoroughly.
  5. Season to taste (this is my favorite part :) with garlic, thyme, poultry seasoning and sage.
  6. Stuff bird cavity loosely and roast; bake the rest in a casserole dish at 350oF for 30 to 45 minutes.
  7. You can baste it with pan drippings if you wish; I love to get the sort of crunchy crust this produces.
