Ingredients

8 large Granny Smith apples
8 ounces sweet or hot Italian sausage, casings removed
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Cran•Apple™ Cranberry Apple Juice Drink
2 cups Ocean Spray® Fresh or Frozen Cranberries, coarsely chopped plus 16 whole berries
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Slice off 1 inch from top of each apple. Core apples, but do not go through bottom. Scoop out remaining apple flesh, leaving 1/4-inch shell. Chop scooped apple flesh.

Cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat, stirring to crumble, until no longer pink. Add onion and chopped apples; cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is softened. Add juice drink, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Add chopped cranberries, egg, brown sugar, parsley, thyme and 1 cup cheese; mix well. Fill apple shells with stuffing. Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese and the walnuts. Top each with 2 whole cranberries. Place apples in large baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.
