Apple and sausage keep every bite of this stuffing moist and delicious, while toasted pecans add a bit of crunch. Fresh herbs are a nice touch, too.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a large bowl. In the same skillet, saute onions and celery in butter until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Add the bread cubes, apples, pecans, sage, thyme, salt, pepper and onion mixture to the sausage. Stir in enough broth to reach desired moistness. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish (dish will be full). Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 21 servings (3/4 cup each).
Editor's Note: This recipe makes enough stuffing to stuff a 21-pound turkey. Bake until a meat thermometer reads 180° for turkey and 165° for stuffing.
