1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, for spicy (optional)

Directions

Saute the sausage in heavy, high walled pot. Cook until done and crumble. Drain excess fat.

Add olive oil. Add leeks, apples, celery and poultry seasoning until leeks are soft. Add cranberries, sage and rosemary. Mix in croutons and parsley. Add Chicken broth a little at a time until stuffing is moist but not wet and mushy. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake in 9x13 casserole dish, uncovered at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until the top is crispy and the center is piping hot.
