Sausage Apple Stuffing

Five Stars.  Almost 2,500 reviews.  I am so excited to make this for our Thanksgiving feast!!

{What you need}
1 1/2 cups cubed whole wheat bread
3 3/4 cups cubed white bread
1 pound pork or turkey sausage
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 cups chopped celery
5 tsp fresh sage, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 golden delicious apple, cored and chopped
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup fresh parsley, minced
1 3/4 cup chicken stock
1 egg, beaten
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350.  Spread the bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet.  Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until evenly toasted.  Transfer toasted bread cubes to a large bowl.  In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned.  Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes to blend flavors.  Pour sausage mixture over bread bowl.  Mix in chopped apples, dried cranberries and parsley.  Add beaten egg and toss until evenly incorporated. Drizzle with chicken stock and melted butter, and mix lightly.  Transfer into a 9x13 baking dish and cover with tinfoil.  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, then uncover and bake 15 minutes longer.
