  • 3 3/4 white bread, cubed
  • 1 1/2 whole-wheat bread, cubed
  • 1 ground turkey sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3/4 celery, chopped
  • 2 1/2 dried sage
  • 1 1/2 dried rosemary
  • 1/2 dried thyme
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, cored and chopped
  • 3/4 dried cranberries
  • 1/3 parsley, minced
  • 1 cooked turkey liver, chopped finely
  • 3/4 turkey stock
  • 4 unsalted butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Spread the white and whole-wheat bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until evenly toasted. Transfer the toasted bread cubes to a large bowl.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme and cook for 2 minutes, stirring to blend flavors.

Pour the sausage mixture over the bread. Mix in the apples, dried cranberries, parsley, and liver. Drizzle with turkey stock and melted butter, and mix lightly.
