Sausage Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

I love finding recipes with beautiful photos and descriptions that make you salivate before you can finish the instructions.  This recipe is the perfect stuffing for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Unfortunately, I have no gorgeous photos to make you salivate.  I scrounged up a few just to make it interesting.  Seriously, this stuffing is the bomb.

3 3/4 cups of cubed white bread
1 1/2 cups of cubed whole wheat bread
1 lb ground sausage
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 Golden Delicious apple, cored and chopped
1 cooked turkey liver, finely chopped
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
4 Tbl. melted butter
3/4 c. turkey stock
2 1/2 tsp. sage
1 1/2 tsp. rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Bake bread cubes on baking sheet 5-7 minutes.  (I often buy pre-made bread cubes/stuffing)
In large skillet, cook sausage and onions.  
Add celery, sage, rosemary and thyme and cook 2 minutes.
Pour sausage mixture over bread in bowl.  
Mix in apples, cranberries, parsley and liver.
Drizzle with turkey stock and melted butter and mix lightly.
Stuff in turkey or cook in pan until internal temperature is 160 degrees.
