Perfect Stuffing
(Anacleto Rapping / Los Angeles Times)

Brown sausage, onions, celery, sage and thyme in butter over medium heat.


Place stuffing mix in large bowl and add sausage mixture, apples, cranberries, water chestnuts, pecan pieces, prunes, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Add eggs, then broth, a little at a time, mixing constantly until bread is moistened.


Stuff in turkey or bake at 375 degrees in 13x9-inch baking dish tightly covered with foil, 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 30 minutes.

Full of apples, cranberries, water chestnuts, prunes, pecans and herbs, this lush and colorful stuffing was our tasters’ favorite. It would also be good with pork and duck. From Sandra Gill, Long Beach, who likes to use Mrs. Cubbison’s Dressing.
