At holiday time, you can never have enough stuffing. Whipping up a double batch with one half cooked inside the turkey and the other half cooked outside is the way to go. This method is definitely useful if you’re deep frying the turkey.

Things You'll Need

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Melt butter in a large skillet.

Add sausage, onion, poultry seasoning, and celery to the skillet. Cook on medium heat until sausage is no longer pink, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

Combine bread cubes, salt, cranberries, apple, and pecans in large mixing bowl. Add the sausage mixture. Gradually add the stock to the stuffing until everything is moistened.

Spoon the stuffing into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the top browns. Serve immediately for best flavor.


  • Add more broth if required to make the stuffing moist.
  • Walnuts may be substituted for the pecans.
  • Mild sausage may be used in lieu of spicy.
