“This stuffing pairs well with my Kittencal's Perfect Roasted Whole Turkey (Great for Beginners), for an 18-20 pound turkey you will need to *double* the recipe, the amounts listed are for a 10-pound turkey --- I strongly suggest to prepare this stuffing a day ahead as the flavors will combine together, this may also be baking in a casserole dish covered with foil in a 350 degree f oven for about 30-35 minutes --- *note* for 6 cups bread cubes I use about half of an unsliced French bread (not a baguette) for a double recipe use all of the loaf :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread the bread cubes onto a large baking sheet in a single layer.
  3. Bake about 6-7 minutes or until toasted evenly.
  4. Transfer the bread cubes to a large bowl; set aside (this may be done a day ahead).
  5. In a large skillet cook the pork sausage meat with onion, garlic and thyme until browned breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon while cooking.
  6. Add in celery, sage and rosemary; cook stirring with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Pour the sausage mixture over the toasted bread cubes in the bowl.
  8. Add in chopped apple, craisins or dried cranberries, chopped fresh parsley and toasted nuts; toss well to combine and season with black pepper.
  9. Drizzle the chicken stock and melted butter over the mixture; toss lightly to combine (if the mixture is too dry then add in a little more broth).
  10. Spoon the mixture loosley into the whole turkey (do not pack in the stuffing you can bake any extra in a baking dish).
