Butternut Squash and Sausage Stuffing

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Everyone here at Team SGP is so looking forward to a day of family,  food and gratitude, and we couldn't let the holiday pass without sharing one of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes - Butternut Squash and Sausage Stuffing. 

This stuffing is a riff on Dorie Greenspan's Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good, and it has been a favorite at our table for years. The not-so-secret ingredient that makes this dish such a hit is the sage-flavored sausage. If you don't have room for this on tomorrow's menu, go ahead and bookmark it for Christmas - it is sure to be requested year after year!
