Brown sausage in skillet; drain, reserving 1/2 cup drippings. Add drippings to large bowl; stir in hot water. Add stuffing mixes and sausage; stir just until stuffing mixes are moistened.

Bake turkey 3 to 3-1/4 hours or until internal temperature of thigh is 180ºF and breast and center of stuffing are 165°F, adding dish with remaining stuffing to oven for the last 30 min.

For a crispier skin, brush turkey with oil before roasting.
