Put toasted bread crumbs in a large bowl. Sauté onion and celery in oil and butter until soft. Add sausage and fresh sage. Stir thoroughly and cook a few minutes to combine flavors. Add the cooked mixture to the bread crumbs. Stir in the Delmarvelous Chestnuts, parsley and enough stock to moisten. Place the stuffing in the turkey and cook according to the directions for the turkey. Stuffing can also be placed in a buttered baking dish and baked, covered in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. Remove the cover during the last 20 minutes of baking. Stuffing will fill a 12-15 lb. bird.
