Shiitake-Mushroom Stuffing and Sausage Stuffing
The base for these stuffings is the same, making it easy to serve both vegetarian and meat versions (for a full batch of meat stuffing, use an additional 1 1/2 pounds of sausage). This can accompany our Spice-Rubbed Roast Turkey.
Both the onion-mushroom mixture and the sausage can be refrigerated overnight. To dry the cubed bread, leave it out overnight or spread it on a baking sheet and heat it in a 200-degree oven. The onion-mushroom and sausage mixtures can be mixed with the bread and liquids just before cooking.
