Ingredients

Directions

Allow the cornbread, French bread and crusty bread to sit out on cookie sheets for several hours or overnight, until completely dried out.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Wash the mushrooms thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Mushrooms will be very coated, but that's good! Divide the mushrooms between two sheet pans and roast in the upper half of the oven for at least 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through roasting. Remove from the oven when the mushrooms are deep brown. Set aside.

Turn the oven down to 375 degrees F.

In a large skillet, crumble and the brown sausage over medium-high heat. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside. Pour off any excess grease, and without cleaning the skillet, add in the onions and brown for 5 minutes. Increase the heat to high and add the diced apples, brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until deep golden brown.

Decrease the heat to medium and pour in the wine (be careful if you're using an open flame). Stir and cook to reduce the liquid by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the apple/onion mixture into a bowl and set aside.

Return the skillet to medium heat (again, without washing) and add the chicken broth, rosemary, sage, thyme, turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Heat for a few minutes, then set aside.

Add the bread to a large bowl, then add the browned sausage, mushrooms and apple/onion mixture (and any juice that might have accumulated). Next, add the broth mixture gradually as you toss the ingredients, being prepared not to use all of the liquid according to your taste.

Check the seasonings at the end and add in minced parsley. Pour into a large baking dish (I used an iron skillet) and bake until golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes. (Or you can stuff the turkey if you're into that kind of thing.)

Delicious!
