  • Spread macadamia nuts, pistachios, walnuts, and almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until lightly toasted.

  • Place sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook until evenly brown. Set aside, and drain skillet. Melt butter in the skillet, and cook the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic until tender.

  • In a large bowl, toss together the dry bread stuffing mix, roasted nuts, sausage, onion, celery, carrots, and garlic. Season with sage, salt, and pepper. Mix in 3 cups chicken stock. Gradually add remaining chicken stock as needed to make the mixture evenly moist. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. (Or use to stuff the turkey just before roasting.)

  • Bake stuffing 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until crisp and golden brown.

Great recipe base for Thanksgiving. I did make some changes to suit our preferences and what I had on hand. Instead of stuffing mix I used Farm to Market Grains Galore bread which I cubed and toasted in the oven. I used walnuts almonds and pine nuts; no pistachios or macadamias. I also doubled the amount of sausage and used fresh sage instead of dried sage. We enjoyed it with our Thanksgiving dinner but it was much much better the following day. I'll make it again next year but I recommend making it a day ahead of time. Read More

I made this recipe this afternoon! It was divided into to large square baking dishes and there was still some leftover to go inside the bird and some in an extra aluminum baking pan. It turned out AMAZING!!! This MIGHT be my favorite dressing! I followed the directions and stopped with about one cup of chicken broth to spare. It was a fun and easy recipe to put together. Delicious! Read More
