cornbread dressing with turkey sausage

Cornbread Dressing with Turkey Sausage and Apples

3 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 lb. turkey sausage links, casings removed

2 large onions, chopped

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

3 celery ribs, chopped

2 tbsp. poultry seasoning

1 tbsp. chopped fresh sage

2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

8 cups of baked cornbread

4 cups cubed (1-inch cubes) stale white sandwich bread

3 cups chicken broth, heated

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with oil.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet, add the turkey sausage, and cook, breaking up the meat with the side of a spoon, until it loses its pink color, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and heat. In batches, if necessary, add the onions, apples, and celery and cook, stirring often, until the onions are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the poultry seasoning, sage, and thyme. Mix with the sausage in the bowl.

Add the cornbread and bread cubes and mix well. Gradually add enough of the broth to moisten the dressing; it should not be soggy. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread evenly in the baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil. (The dressing can be prepared up to 6 hours ahead and refrigerated.)

Bake until the dressing is heated through, about 30 minutes (about 45 minutes if the dressing has been chilled). If you like a crusty top, remove the foil halfway through baking. Serve hot.
