Uncooked sausage in stuffing?

I've always cooked my sausage (italian cheese and parsley) before putting it in the stuffing. I read SOME DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This sounds very bizarre to me. Does anyone do this, not cook their sausage before placing it in the stuffing (which will THEN be cooked)?????? Enlighten me.

I've never heard of it being stuffed raw. That would make me nervous in terms of potential food poisoning issues. Plus, I'd think that this would make it extra-greasy. By cooking it ahead, like you do, you can drain some of the excess fat. We don't stuff with sausage, but if we did, I'd definitely cook first.

I agree with you 100%, PA.

I would never even consider not cooking it beforehand.

Of course you have to cook it first.

Well here it is:
According to Instructions for Cooking a Turkey from Zorn's Poultry Farms in Bethpage Long Island, it says :
Zorn's Giblet Stuffing,
Ready to put in your Turkey
For added Flavor-
Combine 1lb of our OWN SAUSAGE MEAT with
approximately 3lbs of our STUFFING.
(For best results DO NOT pre-cook sausage)
I called them and asked if they really meant DON'T cook the sausage before putting it in the stuffing IN THE TURKEY and they agreed "It cooks and imparts such a wonderful flavor" I asked should'nt I be worried about bacteria and they said "ABSOLUTELY NOT, WE LOVE OUR CUSTOMERS, WE WANT YOU TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!!" So thats it.

******I will still cook mine!!!

Well - maybe if they only use their sausage and they know without a doubt that they use impeccably sanitary equipment to make the sausage - but I'm still with you, deb - cook that sausage!
