Quick and dirty vegetarian stuffing

This recipe is not really so much a recipe as a combining store-bought easily prepared items to make something even better from them.

Buy any type of bagged stuffing to prepare. Most of these are vegetarian and basically look like a large bag of croutons with some seasoning mixed in. That's probably because that's all they really are.
Stove-Top and those type's of stuffing mix are not vegetarian and should be avoided.

Most of the bags call for a chicken stock and some celery and some butter. The easy way to make that vegetarian is to used vegetable stock instead, and to make it vegan, use any dairy-free butter spread such as Smart Balance's Light spread or Earth Balance. (no relation)

Also get a tube of Light Life sausage. This stuff might be the best tasting meat substitute on the market.

Crumble and brown the sausage while you're heating the water or vegetable stock for the stuffing mix.
Preheat the oven to about 375.
Set the sausage aside and finish preparing the stuffing as directed on the package.
Mix the sausage into the stuffing and stir in some brown sugar, a few heaping spoonfuls will do. It really depends on taste for this one.
Put this all into a baking dish and sprinkle some more brown sugar lightly on top. Scatter a few dabs of butter or vegan butter sub and leave it in the oven until the tops is a little toasty, or very toasty if you like it crunchy. A tip for those who like it crunchy though, turn up the heat and bake for less time so that the rest of it doesn't dry out.

Serve it with your favorite fake chicken or tofurkey or just eat it on it's own. It's that good.

Dirty Vegetarian stuffing:
Any variety of instant stuffing mix that is vegetarian
One pack of GimmeLean or similar brand of vegetarian sausage
Brown sugar
