Sausage-Apple Stuffing

1 lb. bulk breakfast sausage (like Jimmy Dean's)
1 onion, chopped
3 ribs celery, diced
1 bag stuffing mix (large bag, Pepperidge Farm works well)
1 stick margarine or butter
1 Tbsp. dried sage or 3 Tbsp. fresh, minced
2 red apples

Heat saute pan and brown sausage, breaking it up. Remove sausage and discard all but 1 Tbsp. of drippings. Saute onion and celery in drippings until onion is translucent. Remove pan from heat and add margarine or butter and stuffing mix, stirring so that residual heat melts the margarine. Add sage and enough water to moisten dressing (about a cup).

Core apples and dice (leave peels on) and stir into dressing. (You can also add some chopped cranberries -- about 1/2 cup.)

Stuff turkey cavities lightly and skewer shut. Stuffing that doesn't fit inside the turkey can be baked in a greased casserole for 1 hour at 350.
