Make Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing by toasting 1 1/2 cups of cubed whole wheat bread and 3 3/4 cups of cubed white bread in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for seven minutes and then setting the bread aside. Brown 1 pound of ground turkey sausage and 1 cup of chopped onion in a skillet at medium heat, and then stir in 3/4 cup of chopped celery, 2 1/2 teaspoons of dried sage, 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried rosemary and 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme. Toss the bread cubes with the sausage, 3/4 cup of dried cranberries, 1/3 cup of minced fresh parsley, and 1 cooked and minced turkey liver. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter and 3/4 cup of turkey stock before stuffing the dressing in the turkey.

While the mushroom mixture cools, toss 1 cup of asiago cheese and 1 loaf of cubed sourdough bread in a mixture of 3 1/2 cups of chicken broth and 3 eggs, and then add the mushroom mixture. Bake the stuffing at 375 F for 50 to 60 minutes.
