Thanksgiving Apple Sausage Stuffing Recipe: Courtesy of Red the Steakhouse

Let's face it. The best part of the Thanksgiving meal is the sausage. Without it, the turkey is just a slice of meat. Sausage is what gives a turkey its flair.

This stuffing takes about ten minutes to prepare, and about 20 minutes to bake. Red the Steakhouse's chef Peter Vauthy shared this recipe with us as sort of a public service, because your turkey deserves better than stuff from a box.

Chef Peter's Apple Sausage Stuffing

1 bag bread crumbs (about 15 ounces)

4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced

1 jar apple sauce

1 small onion, diced small

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pound bulk Italian sausage

2 eggs

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Brown the sausage, drain off the excess fat, and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and saute the onions, garlic, and apples.

In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, apple sauce, parsley, effs, and mix until evenly combined.

Now, add the sausage and apple mixture and mix thoroughly.

Place in an oven safe dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
