I have had turkey with uncooked sausage stuffing, that's how my mum used to do it when we were small and I am sure it is common practice in Australia, but I agree, it sounds like a fairly efficient way to get food poisoning! However I don't recall ever getting food poisoning at home. Now the conventional wisdom in the UK is not to stuff your bird with anything other than flavourings, like bay leaves, lemon etc, and to cook your stuffing seperately, as I have noticed many of you are doing, when reading throught the turkey day posts.

On one of the episodes of West Wing last year, President Bartlett called the Butterball Turkey Hotline with this exact question. The response? Always cook all your stuffing ingredients before filling the cavity of the bird.

Smile Uncooked sausage stuffed in turkey

I have been stuffing my turkey with uncooked sausage for 20 years. It turns out moist and more tasty. The sausage cooks in the turkey. I have used different sausage but my favorite is Jimmy Dean's sage. I did cook the sausage before stuffing it in the turkey one year as a test and was not happy with the results. The flavors did not blend as well and the sausage itself didn't blend in as well with the rest of the ingredients.

could you just microwave the sausage at the end of the turkey process in order to ensure it is safe? I dunno. Sometimes I nuke stuff if it hasnt been cooked all the way but it usually is still pretty hot at that pt.

Well, I suppose so. It would be a lot easier to microwave the sausage before you added it to the stuffing.

I always cook my pork sausage before adding to the stuffing.
