Big Island Style Baked Stuffing

We're not ashamed to admit that we're fans of boxed stuffing (we love Stove Top!) But when it came to designing a Thanksgiving dish that highlighted Big Island flavors, what better way than with a stuffing!

This recipe is simple - it's all about the fresh ingredients, adding the right amount of broth, lots of butter (Thanksgiving calories don't count!) and being sure to strain out that excess sausage oil. The result is a hearty stuffing bursting with flavor. You might consider this dish a entrée on its own!
