Sausage Cranberry Stuffing

I make this yummy sweet-savory stuffing every year. I got it from Allrecipes, but adapted it to fit my family's tastes.

5 cups bread cubes
1 pound ground sausage
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped celery
2 1/2 teaspoons dried sage
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
3/4 cup turkey stock
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degree F (175 degree C). Spread the bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until evenly toasted. Transfer toasted bread cubes to 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, stirring, for 2 minutes to blend flavors.
Pour sausage mixture over bread in bowl. Mix in dried cranberries and parsley. Drizzle with turkey stock and melted butter, and mix lightly. Spoon into turkey to loosely fill or bake in a 9x13 inch pan for more crunchy stuffing.

Yum, i've never had stuffing with sausage in it... does it make it taste spicy?

Just a bit, but really just gives it a salty sweet flavor in contrast to the cranberries. Try it, you'll like it!
