I really don't like ground turkey, and was afraid I wouldn't like turkey sausage either.

Well I put everything but the kitchen sink in the dressing and it turned out great. I do miss the sausage, but will have no trouble eating lots of it. I used bread cubes, onion, roasted garlic, chives, celery, even 1 shredded carrot, eggs, veggie stock and lots of herbs. I think that's all. I think it's the celery that makes it for me. I used almost the whole stalk.

I'm off to finish preparing my lesson for Sunday so I can go to dd Jeanette's tomorrow.

Val, I used to use Italian pork sausage in mine. This year I used breakfast sausage. One of the kid's can't eat pork sausage so hubby got Jimmy Dean turkey sausage patties for her. On it's own for breakfast I thought it wasn't great but it wasn't bad. I used it in red eye gravy and in that I couldn't notice the difference. So I think that if you used it in your stuffing there's so many other flavors that it might work. Besides the sausage I used onions, celery and walnuts and moistened it with dry sherry and broth. Sometimes I put chopped apples in it but hubby doesn't like fruit in it.
