Step 1

Preheat oven to 325ºF.

Remove casings from sausages. Cook sausage meat in large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up into small pieces with wooden spatula, for 8 minutes or until cooked through. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the skillet.

Add shallots, garlic, celery, carrots and sage and sauté for 8 minutes or until golden. Add butter and stir until melted.

Add oyster and chanterelle mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms are softened. Add white wine and boil until wine evaporates. Season with salt and pepper. Scrape into large bowl. Add bread and parsley and toss to combine.

Drizzle chicken stock over stuffing mixture to moisten. Pour into greased 10-cup casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes or until crisp and golden.
