Ingredients

1 Whole loaf low carb bread, (16 slices) dried and cut into cubes.
1 lb Bulk sage pork sausage
1/2 C Onion, chopped
1/2 C Celery, chopped
2 T Fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 t Salt

2 t Poultry seasoning
1/2 t Pepper
1/4 C Butter, melted
1/2 C Water
2 Granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped

8 to 24 lb Turkey

Directions

Dry the bread slices in a 225-degree oven until brittle but not brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Then cut them into cubes.



Heat oven to 325F degrees.



In small skillet brown pork sausage with onion and celery. Do not drain.



In large bowl, combine bread cubes, parsley, salt, poultry seasoning, pepper, and butter, mix well. Stir in water, apples, and sausage mixture (including drippings from sausage).



Remove giblets from turkey, reserve to make gravy.



Rinse turkey inside and out with cold water, pat dry with paper towels.

Comments

*The stuffing in this recipe will fill a 24 lb turkey. For smaller turkeys, heat the extra stuffing in a slow cooker. Cover, set at high for 30 minutes, reduce to low. As turkey produces drippings or after 2 hours, add 1 tablespoon drippings or chicken broth for each cup of stuffing in slow cooker. Mix lightly.
