Ingredients:  
4 large onions,
1 bunch celery,
1 1/2 lbs. pork sausage,
2 14 oz. bags onion and sage stuffing mix (croutons),
2 apples - finely diced (optional),
4 cups chicken broth,
2 tsp. poultry seasoning,
Guts (oops giblets) from the turkey

Directions:
Directions:
Brown pork sausage and set aside. Finely dice onion and celery and saute in butter set aside. Boil giblets and grind them up or chop them very fine if you don't have a grinder set aside. Finely dice apples set aside.

In a large bowl combine celery, onion, pork sausage, stuffing mix, giblets, apples and poultry seasoning. Mix well. Add chicken broth a little at a time. You want the stuffing to be moist but not soggy the amount of broth can vary from batch to batch (too much broth and your stuffing will suck, you'll blame me for giving you a bad recipe).

Stuff the bird but don't pack it like the powder in a muzzle loader (if you city slickers know what that is). You can also bake it in a casserole dish at 350 for about 1 1/2 hours (remove the lid for the last 20 minutes if you like a crispy top) if your deep frying your turkey ( not a bad idea).

Grandma Helen used hard bread instead of stuffing mix but times have changed!
