OK, i have one more quick thought for everyone. The guy that owns the meat locker here in town also owns the grocery store so they always have really fresh meat. They have recently started making fresh preformed patties called pork grillers (I have had them like a burger and they are amazin). They are a 50/50 sausage/bacon grind (a little pork on pork action hah). I am thinking of buying some of the patties, breaking them down and browning like sausage for my stuffing instead of just sausage. Do you think this may come out too greasy or will it work? It sounds fantastic in my head! Thanks!
There is only one way to find out for sure, try it!
