2sprigsfresh rosemary(leaves stripped off the sprig)
1Granny Smith apple -cored, peeled and diced
⅓cupfresh parsley - minced
1 ½ - 2cupschicken stocknote: you might need more or less depending on your bread
Preheat oven to 350°F
Cube bread. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until the bread is crispy.
In a skillet, cook sausage and onion on a medium high heat.
While the sausage mixture is cooking, chop up your celery and herbs.
Add the aromatics to the sausage mixture and cook for another couple of minutes.
Diced apples and mince parsley.
In a large bowl, add the sausage mixture. Add in the apples, parsley and cranberries, bread and melted butter.
To this mixture, add the stock, starting with 1 cup. Mix it together and see how it looks. You want to bread to absorb as much liquid as possible and it will be very moist - but there shouldn't be any liquid left in the bowl.
Spread in an even layer on an 9 x 13 baking sheet. If you are making a double batch, you will need two baking sheets.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure the stock is absorbed.
