Serves: 8-12
Prep Time: 45 mins
Cook Time: 3.5 hrs
TIP: To save time, make the stuffing up to two days ahead and refrigerate until you are ready to use.
  1. Make sure the turkey is thawed and the giblets have been removed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
  3. Prepare your stuffing and set aside.
  4. Pat the turkey dry, inside and out, with paper towels.
  5. Rub the turkey with the olive oil, inside and out.  Season generously with salt, pepper, and sage, inside and out.
  6. Stuff the cavity loosely with the stuffing.
  7. Place the turkey into your roasting pan. Add the turkey broth and wine.
  8. Roast the turkey for 3 ½-4 ½ hours or until the juices run clear and an instant thermometer reads 180°F (82°C) in the thickest part of the thigh.
  9. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.

Stuffing:

  1. Sauté sausage in a non-stick skillet until cooked through, breaking up into chunks while cooking. Remove from heat and cool.
  2. Combine sausage, bread, onion, dried herbs, cranberries, oats and fresh sage.
  3. Add broth and mix to distribute.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
NOTE: Cooking times are for planning purposes only – always use a digital meat thermometer to determine doneness.
