Sausage-Pecan Turkey Stuffing

9 cups soft bread crumbs
1 pound bulk pork sausage
2 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup butter, cubed
3 unpeeled tart apples, coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup apple juice
Chicken broth
1 turkey (14 to 16 pounds)

Place bread crumbs in a large bowl; set aside. In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion in butter until sausage is no longer pink and onion is tender; do not drain. Add to bread crumbs. Stir in apples, pecans, parsley, thyme, sage, salt and pepper; stir in apple juice and enough broth to moisten.

Just before baking, stuff the turkey. Skewer openings; tie drumsticks together. Place on rack in a roasting pan. Bake at 325 for 5 to 5-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 185. When the turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil and baste if needed. Remove all stuffing. Makes 12-14 servings.

Note: Stuffing may be baked in a greased 3-qt. covered baking dish at 325 for 70 minutes (uncover for the last 10 minutes). Stuffing yields about 12 cups.
