California Wild Rice And Sausage Stuffing
Rinse wild rice in a colander under cool running water until water runs clear. Add boiling broth (or water with 2 teaspoons salt) to wild rice in a 2-quart casserole dish; cover and bake at 350° F for 1 hour. Drain any excess liquid, if necessary. You should have 3 cups cooked wild rice. Set aside.
Meanwhile, heat butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté 1 to 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms wilt and give off juices, about 4 minutes.
Add turkey sausage, mixing and crumbling as it cooks, until no pink remains, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add cooked wild rice to turkey sausage mixture along with parsley, sage, salt and pepper. Stir over medium heat until flavors blend, about 2 minutes.
May use to stuff cavity of turkey, chicken, pheasant or squash.
