Sausage + Pink Lady® Apple Stuffing



Homemade Breadcrumbs

  • 1, 24 oz loaf sourdough bread, torn into ½”-1” pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 lb sweet italian sausage, cooked
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 tbsp butter, cubed


  1. Make the breadcrumbs: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and spread the torn bread onto a baking sheet. Add the olive oil, garlic powder, and salt. Toss to coat. Place in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until the cubes are dried out, shaking the pan every 10 minutes. Let cool completely and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make the stuffing: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the apple, onion, and celery. Saute for about 5-7 minutes or until tender. Add a generous pinch of salt and pepper, the garlic, sage, rosemary, thyme, and saute for another 2 minutes. Add the cooked sausage and stir until combined.
  4. Add the apple and sausage mixture into the large mixing bowl with the breadcrumbs. Add 2 cups of chicken broth and toss until combined. If the mixture is too dry, add more broth until the bread is decently coated with broth.
  5. Pour the stuffing into your 9×13 baking dish and place the cubed butter on top. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for about 20-25 minutes. The top should be golden brown. Let cool about 10 min before serving.
