Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

I have never been one to cook stuffing inside of a turkey – it just seems like too much hassle!  Not to mention, I couldn’t find a whole turkey here in Bogotá.  I ended up getting a turkey breast and a couple of drumsticks.  I decided to make this stuffing, which turned out quite lovely!

Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Makes about 10 servings

Ingredients:

2  1/2 cups cubed whole wheat bread

3 cups cubed white bread

1 pound turkey sausage

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped celery

1 tablespoon sage

1/2 tablespoon rosemary

1 teaspoon thyme

1 Golden Delicious apple, chopped

3/4 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup minced fresh parsley

2 cups turkey broth

1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degree F (175 degree C). Spread the white and whole wheat bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until evenly toasted. Transfer 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. Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes to blend flavors.

In a deep 8 inch baking dish (or a 9×13 inch casserole dish) combine 3 cups mashed butternut squash,  sugar, milk, vanilla , salt, flour, eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter.

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

Place in a casserole dish and return to the oven to bake for around 30 minutes.
