I love this stuffing....I've used it for years. The only variation I do, is that I throw some whole fresh crans, and some chopped up apple and or pears into the's awesome (and the best part.....NO "jiblets" yick.)

This very close to the stuffing I have made for years. I also use Jimmy Dean Sage sausage (the closest I can find to UK pork sausage in California) I also use the chicken broth and chestnuts that have been roasted first. This is a fab recipe and my family love it.

This recipe is very close to the one I have been eating probably over 50years!! But we use half the eggs and brown Jimmy Dean pork sausage ( sage type) and add to the mix. Delicious.
