Apple Sausage Stuffing
1 pound Sage Sausage (I usually use Jimmy Dean)
2 medium onions chopped finely
8 celery stalks chopped finely
2 large red apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (you decide how big or small you would like the pieces in your stuffing...I like small to medium size chunks)
1 stick of butter
About 8 ounces of Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing
About 1/2 cup to 1 cup of chicken broth
Brown the sausage in a deep, large skillet at medium heat. Once browned, add onion, celery, apples and butter. Let simmer until onions are clear and celery and apples are soft (about 20-30 minutes on medium heat). Remove from the heat and add the stuffing into the mixture a little bit at a time. Add the chicken broth (or turkey drippings from pan) to add moisture to the mixture. Use your preference as to how much to add.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until brown on top.
As I said...there is not one holiday in my family that I can not remember this dish. I have three brothers, and we now literally *fight* over the left-overs! I get cravings for it during the middle of the year and bust out my crock-pot to make a turkey breast with all of the fixins'...and this is the high point of the meal!!
I hope you enjoy...sorry for the "tardy" post..it's been a cRRAAAAZzzzy day!!!
