    I bought turkey sausage, the long kind, at Trader Joe's. I found an online recipe for wrapping them in phyllo dough (or grape leaves) but it says to brown the sausage, and after it is then wrapped with-the phyllo, put it in the oven on 350 to get the phyllo browned. Won't that dry out the sausage? Why can't I do it all at once, in the oven?
    Thanks in advance.

    It shouldn't if you brown the sausage quickly so that the natural juices are locked in the casing.

    Well, it was a moot point. husband called me 6X from the grocery store and couldn't find phyllo.
    Then he called back and said he'd found it.
    So he brings home a box of individually formed phyllo cups already filled with-spinach and artichoke dip ...
    I sliced the sausage into tiny pcs and put toothpicks in them.
