Apple, Sausage and Herb Stuffing

Yesterday my daughter and I tested a stuffing recipe from Barefoot Contessa. Apple, sausage and herb stuffing. The first we've ever made and from scratch. I must say we're very proud of it. Our Thanksgiving at my mums side of the family are usually catered because of the very busy life they live. My sister hosted her first one last year and the food was delicious. This year it will be our first year to host.

We're all very excited for Thursday. We're making everything from scratch. This recipe is really good got the hubs palate approval. It has loads of flavour and moist. You taste a hint of everything, sweet, mild spice, fruity, and savoury.

Melt butter in the pan and sauté the onions, apples, celery, carrots, until tender.

 Add 2 tbs. fresh parsley (I used dried parsley)

Cut round french bread into 1 inch cubes and toast in the oven at 300F/150C/Gas Mark 2 for 7 minutes. Set in a large  bowl.

 Add in the onions, apples, carrots, and celery.

In the same pan cook the sweet Italian sausage and combine mild Italian sausage and mix together.

While the sausage is cooking add 1 cup cranberries and 1 cup chicken stock into the stuffing.

Once the sausages are done add it to the rest of the stuffing. Mix well and place in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Sorry the photo's blurry my hands were shaking.
