  • Add the celery and butter mixture to the bowl with the sausage.


  • Pour the box of Mrs. Cubbison’s Stuffing, apples, and cranberries over the sausage, onion, and celery in the very large bowl.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the chicken stock, egg, parsley, and sage.

  • Drizzle the chicken stock-egg mixture over the stuffing, season with salt and pepper, and mix until combined.


  • Pour the stuffing into the buttered casserole dish and cover with foil.  Bake 20 minutes with the foil on, then remove the foil and cook for 20 minutes more.  Enjoy!
