Spicy sausage counters the sweet apricots in this hearty recipe. You can toast the bread and cook the sausage, onions, and celery 1 day in advance. Combine the ingredients just before stuffing or baking.


  • Well-spiced pork sausages or turkey sausages, 1 pound, casings removed and meat broken into clumps
  • Canola oil,


In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the sausages, breaking up the clumps with a wooden spoon and stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and discard the fat in the pan.

Return the pan to low heat and add the oil. Add the onions and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 7–8 minutes. Add to the bowl with the sausage.
