Sausage and Apple Stuffing
Preheat oven to 350° and toast bread cubes until dry, approx. 20 min, being careful not to brown or burn. In a large skillet over med heat, sauté sausage in olive oil until just cooked through and crumbled (do not overcook). Remove from pan; place into a large bowl. In the same skillet, melt butter and sauté onion and celery until slightly softened, approx. 4 min. Add apples, salt and pepper and turn heat up to med-high, cooking quickly, stirring often, 2 more min. Add apple mixture to sausage in bowl. Add toasted bread, herbs, turkey stock and water chestnuts, tossing to combine. Let rest 5 min, while liquid is absorbed into bread. Press gently on mixture and add a little more stock if very dry. Transfer mixture to a casserole dish, cover and bake 30 min. Remove cover and bake 15 min more. Serve immediately.
