    sugarpea's Note:

    A picture of this dish should be in the dictionary under "savory". Made this a few times, years ago, to rave reviews and have been looking for the recipe ever since. Found it. I recommend baking it separately in a casserole and don't wait for a holiday. This is good anytime. If you prefer, leave out the bacon and sausage, it's still great. Cooking wild rice is not included in prep or cook times.

      This was liked by all at our Thanksgiving get-together, even one who doesn't usually like mushrooms. I used regular breakfast sausage because I had some on hand and Newfie Savoury instead of leaf oregano. I will try this recipe again with a zippier sausage to add to the savoury flavour. Thank you, sugarpea, for adding this to Zaar.

      This recipe has become our holiday standard. I tried it last year and searched for ages before I found it again this year - so thankful I found it! I substitute Poultry Seasoning for the spices - it comes out beautifully. I also use Portabella mushrooms in place of regular mushrooms, and spicy Italian pork sausage instead of mild. I also find that adding raw celery pieces gives it a very nice satisfying crunchy texture (use 1/2 celery as per recipe, add in the other half when combining ingredients). As someone diagnosed with Celiac disease in early adulthood I always felt deprived that I couldn't have the traditional bread stuffing. Most years I would indulge and just suffer afterwards. I finally stumbled upon this recipe which I used in the neck cavity (just use more wild rice instead of breadcrumbs), bread stuffing in the larger cavity for everyone else. It turns out this is such a hit that now this is all we use!

      The flavor of this dish is fantastic! I made this for my first Thanksgiving in Japan and altered a few ingredients due to availability here. I made my own chicken sausage since pork sausage is hard to find. I used Japanese rice instead of wild rice, and shiitake mushrooms which added a wonderful richness and smoky flavor. I did leave out the oregano completely, and also used panko (Japanese breadcrumbs). The flavor was still all there -- amazing. Someone get me away from the leftovers!
