Ingredients

  1. Check 1tablespoon olive oil, plus more for the baking dish
  2. Check 4 links sweet Italian sausage, casings removed (about 1 pound)
  3. Check 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  4. Check 2 medium onions, chopped
  5. Check 2 tart apples (such as Granny Smith or Pink Lady), cored and chopped
  6. Check 1/4cup chopped fresh sage
  7. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  8. Check 1 large baguette (about 3/4 pound), cut into 3/4-inch pieces (about 7 cups)
  9. Check 3cups low-sodium chicken broth
  10. Check 2 large eggs, beaten

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch or some other shallow 3-quart baking dish. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a large bowl.
  2. To the drippings in the skillet, add the celery, onions, apples, sage, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing often, until the vegetables are tender, 7 to 9 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable mixture, baguette, broth, and eggs to the sausage and toss to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and cover with foil.
  4. Bake the stuffing for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until browned, 20 to 30 minutes more.
