When I saw this recipe in Gourmet Magazine, I knew I would have to try it. The magazine states, "This delicious stuffing is similar to a savory bread pudding." Bake it along side rather than inside, the bird.

Kind of mild, my sausage was spicy enough to make up for it though and it turned out fine.

Bev, I thought the flavors were really great, and I like the salty sausage and sweet apple combo. I think in the future I'd make it without the custard base because I like a dryer stuffing. Thanks for posting!
