Once you know the stuffing basics, it's easy to create variations. Before long you'll develop and swear by your own secret recipe. To save time on the day you are cooking the turkey, prepare the stuffing a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Do not stuff the bird until you are ready to put it in the oven.

To stuff a 16- to 20-pound turkey

3 large, tart apples, such as McIntosh or Macoun
1 pound sweet Italian sausage meat, crumbled
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 large onion, diced
1 small fennel bulb, diced, optional
1/2 cup Marsala or sherry
1 chicken bouillon cube
3 cups diced whole wheat bread (about 5 slices)
3 cups diced white bread (about 5 slices)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper

Large frying pan
Large bowl

1. Core and coarsely chop the apples and set aside.
2. Place a large frying pan on MEDIUM-HIGH heat and let it get hot, about 45 seconds. Add the sausage meat and cook, stirring constantly, until browned, about 4 – 5 minutes. Transfer the meat to a colander, let the fat drain off, then transfer it to a large bowl.
3. Wipe out the frying pan, return it to HIGH heat, and add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the diced onions, chopped apples, and fennel (if using). Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 12 minutes. Add the Marsala or sherry and the bouillon cube and cook until the bouillon is dissolved and the liquid is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the sausage.
4. Add the diced whole wheat and white bread cubes, parsley, thyme, and salt and pepper to the bowl, and stir gently to combine. Let the mixture cool before stuffing the bird, or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
