For some people, the holidays bring out the joy of cooking (among other things, of course.) And it's often that one time of year to make Grandma's famous pecan pie or your dad's deep fried turkey.

We want to hear them all!

Michelle Li has a favorite dressing she makes every year that is only shared during the holidays. She'll cook your favorite recipe and give you a shoutout on Thursday! Email them to her or our web team.

Homemade stuffing for dayyyyyssssss #SecondBatch #thanksgiving

Sausage and apple stuffing

1 lb. sourdough bread cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 package of maple pork sausage
2 T butter
1 large onion
3 large celery stalks, chopped
2 apples, chopped (any kind)
2 T thyme
3/4 cup chicken stock
2 eggs, beaten
2 T extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper for taste

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Place the bread cubes in a large baking pan and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until lightly golden. You may have to stir. Transfer to a big bowl.

In a frying pan, cook the sausage, crumbling with a fork. Cook for about 10 minutes until browned and transfer to the bowl with the bread.

Using the same sausage pan, add the butter to the drippings and cook the onion and celery until tender, about 8 minutes. Then add the apples and thyme for another minute or so. Add to the bowl with sausage and bread.

Next, add the stock to the pan to pick up any browned bits. Bring it to a boil and then add to the bowl. Beat the eggs then mix them in the bowl, too.

To bake in a dish, preheat an oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 13 x 9 baking dish and spoon the stuffing into it. Cover with foil and bake for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the top is crisp, which is about 30 more minutes.

If you're baking in a turkey, fill the cavity and increase the roasting time of the turkey by 30 minutes. You will probably still need a baking dish to cook the remaining stuffing.
