"A mellow stuffing that pairs up perfectly with the Roast Turkey with Maple Herb Butter and Gravy. If leeks are not available, substitute 4 cups chopped onions."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread bread cubes in a single layer over two baking sheets. Bake until slightly dry, about 15 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, crumbling coarsely, for about 10 minutes or until evenly brown. Drain off grease, and transfer sausage to a large bowl.
  3. Melt butter in the skillet; add leeks, apples, celery, and poultry seasoning. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes. Stir in the rosemary and dried cranberries.
  4. Mix leek mixture and bread cubes with sausage in bowl. Lightly mix chicken broth into stuffing to moisten; season with salt and black pepper. Spoon stuffing into turkey, packing loosely.
  5. Bake remaining stuffing in a buttered baking dish, covered, at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes. Uncover, and bake another 15 minutes to brown top.

We have served this several years in a row and LOVE it. I do alter it a smidge by adding a little more chicken broth at the end (which I believe the directions forgot to tell you to add in the f...

Excellent change of pace from the traditional stuffing. Slightly sweet, yet with a great flavor, I am going to make this one every year! Note: The stuffing is better if made outside of the Tur...

This was a great stuffing for our Thanksgiving dinner, very easy to make and delicious! I did use a bag of stuffing bread cubes instead of toasting my own bread which may make it taste even bett...
