In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and celery for 5 minutes. Next, add the sausage and cook until browned, about 10 more minutes, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, break up the bread slices by hand into medium-small pieces into a large bowl. Add the seasonings and mix well. Then add the cooked vegetables and sausage and mix again. Finally, add the turkey stock and mix well. There will be enough stuffing for a 10- to 15-pound bird and an 8- by 8-inch pan.
