Sausage and Apple Stuffing Casserole

“You may use fresh sliced mushrooms that have been sauteed in butter in place of canned. If you are planning to serve more than 8 people then prepare two separate recipes and bake in two dishes --- I use all of a 400 gram French bread that amount works perfectly for this recipe --- add in chopped cooked carrots or peas to the stuffing mixture if desired, I have even added in cooked chopped bacon along with the sausage! this is a fantastic stuffing casserole!”
