1 pound bulk Italian or pork sausage
1 pound Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1 loaf dried white bread cubed or 1 (12 ounce) package herbed stuffing cubes
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 beaten egg or egg substitute
1 cup chicken broth or more as needed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a skillet, crumble the sausage and cook until no longer pink. Remove to a paper towel so the excess fat is absorbed. Drain the skillet, reserving 1 tablespoon of fat. Saute the apple in the fat. Set aside.

Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter and saute the onion and celery (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Place the dried bread cubes in a large bowl. Add the parsley, sage, marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper and the sauteed onion, celery and apple. Toss to mix. Add the melted butter and blend well. Add the egg and thoroughly work into the stuffing mixture. Add the broth to moisten and mix well. Don't be afraid to get your hands in the mixture to thoroughly mix and blend the ingredients.

Use the stuffing to either stuff a 12 pound turkey or as a side dish by greasing a 2 quart casserole and fill with dressing. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. If a crisp top crust is desired remove the cover for the last 5 minutes of baking.
