Stir in the bread cubes, cooked sausage, cooked chestnuts, half of the stock, and salt and pepper to taste. Add stock as necessary; the stuffing should be moist but not soggy. Spoon the stuffing into a buttered baking dish; cover with foil and bake in a 350F oven for 15 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Alternatively, spoon the stuffing into the cavity of a capon or turkey.
