I loved a family member's sausage for many years until, I don't know, I started noticing an after taste of something and then later realizing I didn't love the texture. I think I've finally traced it to the bread she uses which is the Pepperidge Farms "Seasoned" stuffing cubes. I just read the ingredient list and discovered cheap oils, HFCS, and "yeasts" which are often code for MSG-type nastiness.
I want a chewy and delicous stuffing liberally studded with whole or halved chesnuts and sausage. Will consider other additions as well. Will have access to plenty of good turkey stock as well.
