The original version of this recipe comes from the Dec/Jan 1997 issue of Taste Of Home magazine. I have since added the sage flavored sausage, and will either skip the mixed nuts or add only pecans. I get wonderful compliments on this stuffing every time i serve it, and the best compliments are when i'm asked to share the recipe or bring the stuffing to the next holiday. Be sure to use 3/4 light rye to 1/4 dark rye, or substitute all light rye, so the rye doesn't overpower. In this combination the flavor is not too strong, just enough that friends and family recognize it as something extra special you've done with your dressing. We've also been successful making this recipe gluten free by using gluten free white bread, broth and the regular flavor of Jimmy Dean Sausage.
