I made turkey one day but had no bread to make stuffing. Though I don't stuff my bird to roast, I just couldn't imagine not having any on the side. So I dug out some things from the pantry and this is the result.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

This Thanksgiving stuffing is fantastic! It is very flavorful and fresh-tasting. This recipe will stuff a 10-pound turkey (which serves six) plus extra. I replaced the usual pork sausage with much healthier turkey sausage. Other dried fruits may also be used in place of cranberries.

Vegetarian Stuffing

I take this to our family gathering for the holidays. Everyone likes it - the meat eaters don't miss the giblets. You can make it vegan by deleting the mushroom soup and increasing the broth, also use no/low fat soup if you like. Chopped walnuts can be substituted for chopped pecans.

Elegant Turkey Stuffing

Rating: Unrated
The distinctiveness of this turkey dressing comes from the orange-flavored liqueur, spicy Italian sausage, apples, and pecans. It's also very easy to prepare. This recipe makes enough to stuff one 18 to 20 pound bird. If you prefer, this dressing can be made with thyme instead of sage.

Quinoa Turkey Stuffing

Rating: Unrated

Quinoa, a delicious and nutritious whole grain, is used to make a light and tasty turkey stuffing. I prefer to bake this stuffing in the bird, but it can be baked separately in another baking dish and basted with the turkey juice.
