My Favorite Turkey Dressing

1 pan of cornbread
1 (6 0z) package Mrs. Cubbison's Dressing, (seasoned croutons)
4 large stalks celery, diced
1 large brown onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 large golden delicious apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1 (14 1/2 oz) defatted chicken broth
1/4 tsp. powdered sage
1/2 pound lean sausage (I like to make my own from lean, ground turkey breast)

Bake one pan of cornbread several days before you plan to make this recipe. Remove cornbread from pan and break into very coarse crumbs. Spread crumbs out on a baking sheet and place in a 250 ° oven until almost completely dry.

In large mixing bowl, combine Mrs. Cubbisons Dressing, the cornbread crumbs, and the sage.

Cook sausage in large skillet. When almost done, drain fat, then add onion and celery to the sausage and cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Add this to the dressing along with the apple and raisins (or dried cranberries).

Add chicken broth to the dressing mixture, stirring to blend all ingredients.

Put dressing into a large crock pot that has been sprayed with a cooking spray. Cover and cook on high setting for 3 to 4 hours. Stir mixture about half way through cooking time., taste and adjust seasonings at this time. When dressing is done it will hold several hours at the low heat setting.
