Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Sausage and Apple Stuffing:

  • 8 cups cubed white bread (about 16 slices)
  • 1 pound chicken sausage
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Spread bread cubes on large cookie sheets; place in a 250° oven for 10 minutes, until dry. Remove from oven and set aside.

Brown sausage in a skillet; breaking up larger pieces. Cook until no longer pink, fully cooked. With a slotted spoon, remove sausage to a large bowl and combine with bread cubes.

Pour off all but 1 to 2 tablespoons of drippings from skillet. Add onions; sauté until tender. Stir in water and apples; heat to boiling. Pour over bread and sausage mixture; add salt; toss lightly until evenly moist.Makes enough to stuff a 10 to 12-pound turkey
