Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Serves 10-20

3 6oz packages stuffing mix, any flavor
1 pound ground sausage (sage flavored is best)
1 cup chopped onion (or Leek)
1 cup chopped celery
2 1/2 teaspoons dried sage (use a little less if you used sage sausage)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 apples, cored and chopped (granny smith and gala are my favs)
3/4 cup craisins (can do half golden raisins)
1/3 cup minced parsley
1 1/2 cup stock (or more if you like it more moist)
1 1/2 cups butter, melted

In a large skillet, cook the sausage, celery and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned.

Pour sausage mixture over bread in bowl. Mix in chopped apples, dried cranberries, parsley, and spices. Drizzle with stock and melted butter, and mix lightly. Spoon into turkey to loosely fill or bake at 350 for about an hour. Cover with foil for the first 30-40 minutes.
