The best Thanksgiving stuffing EVER!!

I made this for Thanksgiving this last year and everyone raved!!!

1 1/2 c. cubed whole wheat bread
3 3/4 c. cubed white bread
1 lb. turkey sausage ( I used mild italian sausage and it was good!)
1 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. chopped celery
2 1/2 t. dried sage
1 1/2 t. dried rosemary
1/2 t. dried thyme
1 golden delicious apple, cored and chopped
3/4 c. dried cranberries
1/3 c. minced fresh parsley
1 cooked turkey liver, finely chopped ( if this grosses you out just leave it out!)
3/4 c. turkey stock ( i used canned chicken stock)
4 T. unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the white and whole wheat bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until evenly toasted. Transfer into a large bowl.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned. add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme, cook for 2 minutes to blend flavors.

Pour sausage into bread in bowl. Mix in chopped apples, dried cranberries, parsley, and liver. Drizzle with butter and turkey stock and mix lightly. Spoon into turkey to fill loosely. **I didn't stuff my turkey - i just put the stuffing back onto a cookie sheet and warmed it through and it was wonderful!**
