Pull out the gloves, the only way this sage and sausage stuffing could be any better is to bake it inside the turkey while it's roasting on the Traeger. Your guests will gobble up every last morsel of Traeger smoked flavor.

Ingredients

Sage-flavored Sausage, such as Bob Evans or Jimmy Dean1 lb.
Celery, diced1/2 cup
Onion, diced1/2 cup
Herb-Seasoned Stuffing (such as Pepperidge Farm)1 (14-oz.) package
Fresh Sage, chopped2 Tbsp.
Fresh Thyme leaves or Marjoram, minced1 Tbsp.
Dried sweetened Cranberries (optional)1/2 cup
Low-sodium Chicken Broth2 cups, plus more as needed to moisten the stuffing
Butter6 Tbsp., plus more for greasing the baking dish

Preparation

Brown the sausage in a large frying pan, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon.

Add the onion and celery and cook until softened. Drain any excess fat. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the stuffing mix and cranberries, if using.

Warm the chicken broth over medium-low heat; add butter and cook until melted. Toss with the bread/sausage mixture and mix lightly.

Butter a 3-quart casserole or baking dish. Do not compress the mixture or it will be dense.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Bake the stuffing, covered, for 35 to 45 minutes; uncover during the last 20 minutes of cooking if you prefer a crunchier texture.

Remove from grill and let the collar rest for ten minutes before carving. When carving the collar, make sure to cut against the grain.
