Preheat oven to 300F. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
On a baking sheet, place the bread cubes and toast for 8-10 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 350F.
In a sauté pan, heat oil. Add the sausage, apples, onions and celery, and sauté for 5-7 minutes, until everything is heated through and the veggies are tender.
Turn off the heat and allow to cool a few minutes.
In a large bowl, place all the ingredients and toss well.
Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the stuffing mixture into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 45 minutes.
Serve with some carved Turkey and gravy.
If you’re using sausage that is not fully cooked, sauté it for 4 minutes before adding the oil and the remaining ingredients.
