I might have to tweak this later . . . . 'cause this is coming from a morphed recipe that is several years old. It's in my mind, and goes a little something like this (hit it!) . . . .
Sausage . . . . links, about 12, skin off, cut into small chunks & pan fry
Onion . . . about 1/4 of a red onion . . . finely chopped . . . add to sausage
Mushrooms . . . a package of sliced . . . sauteed just briefly with the sausage & onion
Long grain wild rice . . . . cooked; I usually get the microwave variety for convenience
Mix those of four things together, then toss them with a large bowl of pretzels & croutons.
Pretzels . . . you need several cups of pieces; so break them into about 1/4 to 1/2 inch bits. Remove the itty tiny crumbs, if you can.
Add stuffing croutons . . . about an equal amount.
Then add chicken broth until it's well moisturized, but not soggy. Add salt and pepper. Add sage. My momma used to say, "add it and toss it until is smells right." Stuff the bird, or do a pan. Or both.
