98.3 TRY Social Dilemma: Does sausage belong in stuffing (or dressing)?

Top Stories

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — I love this 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma because we’ve had this discussion for years with friends. Here’s the email I received:

Hi Jaime,

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and knowing that this year, we can get together with friends and family again, I’m planning a dinner for about seven people. I make a stuffing recipe that has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother and now to me. And it contains sausage. Sweet sausage. And if I don’t say so myself, I think the stuffing (or dressing as some call it) is incredible.

Well, I had one friend who is coming over offer to make the stuffing, but I said no thank you because of this family recipe. She said she was sorry, but that sausage does not belong in stuffing. I immediately responded with all the reasons it does, like the flavor, most importantly, but she shot me down.

She thinks more people will enjoy the stuffing without the sausage. I say no way!

So what do you think? Does sausage belong in stuffing? I’m hoping your listeners can prove that I’m right.

Thanks Jaime! Love the Christmas music.

This is funny. I have this conversation with friends almost every year. The recipe I use for stuffing also contains sweet sausage. Not a lot, but enough to flavor it. And I’ve had friends tell me I was crazy for adding it in. But that’s how I’ve always known stuffing to be, so I say absolutely yes to sausage in stuffing.

What about you? Are you with Tara or her friends who say no way? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
