Baked Sausage, Wild Mushroom, and Hazlenut Stuffing
Stray away from traditional with this stuffing. Wild mushrooms, toasted hazelnuts, fresh herbs and sage-rubbed sausage are baked over maple wood for an earthy take on stuffing.

For sausage seasoning: In a medium mixing bowl, combine sage, kosher salt, black pepper, and dark brown sugar.
Heat a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and break it up into small chunks. Add sausage seasoning to the sausage and cook until browned and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.
When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Butter a 13” x 9” x 2” baking dish and set aside. Scatter bread (torn into 1" pieces) in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until dried out, about 1 hour. Let cool; transfer to a large bowl and add toasted hazelnuts.
Meanwhile, melt 3/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions, mushrooms (sliced 1/4" thick) and celery (sliced 1/4" thick). Stir often until liquid given off by mushrooms has evaporated and mushrooms are browned, about 20-30 minutes.
Add to the bowl with hazelnuts and bread; stir in herbs, salt and pepper. Drizzle in 1-1/2 cups broth and toss gently. Let cool.
Increase temperature on the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat with the lid closed. Whisk together 1-1/2 cups broth, cream, and eggs in a small bowl. Add to bread mixture and fold gently until thoroughly combined.
Transfer to a prepared dish, cover with foil, and place directly on the grill grate. Cook until an instant read thermometer inserted into the center of the dressing registers 160℉, about 40 minutes. Serve warm. Enjoy!
