Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

Sausage Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Sausage Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
