“Tradition with a twist. Whole wheat bread and smoked turkey sausage add healthy flavor in this moist-on-the-inside, crisp-on-top dressing. You can put this stuffing together a few days before serving or up to 2 weeks ahead, then freeze it. Cover and store; thaw when ready to bake. I found this recipe in Prevention magazine. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.”
