Stuffing experiment

So I tried something new with the stuffing this year for Thanksgiving. And by new I mean that I've never heard of it being done this way before. So if you see other chefs serving holiday stuffing this way in a few years, remember you heard it here first. ;)

Most of us have heard that cooking stuffing inside the bird is a bad idea. By the time you get the stuffing hot enough to safely eat, the turkey is usually overcooked.
However there is a flavor component that is lost when baking stuffing separately. The fat/juices/flavor from the roasting meat are meant to be part of the dish.

The solution I tried was to make a sort of mock ballontine with the stuffing.
I made a traditional style stuffing with chicken sausage because, that's the kind of stuffing I like; however you can use any stuffing recipe you like.
