Substitution for Hazelnuts?

I found a Hazelnut and Sage stuffing I want to make for Thanksgiving but I can't seem to find hazelnuts where I live...... any recommendations for an appropriate substitution???

  1. I bet that almost any crunchy nut that you like would be just fine. Try almonds or walnuts.

    1. Brazil nuts would be my choice. But I've used Pistachios; and let's not forget the venerable peanut (not a "nut" per se - but it works well in stuffing)

        Pecans are nice in stuffing and work with sage. There isn't really any nut with a similar flavor to hazelnuts, but you can certainly find the crunch factor in just about any other nut.
