A dressing of sausage, apricots and pecans complements this roasted turkey breast and makes for the perfect holiday dinner.
Heat oven to 350F. Brown sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium heat; drain off fat.
Stir together browned sausage and all remaining ingredients except turkey breast and 3 tablespoons butter in large bowl. Gently loosen skin from turkey in neck area to make large area to stuff. Stuff with sausage mixture; secure skin flap with toothpicks.
Place remaining sausage mixture in 1-quart covered casserole; refrigerate. During last 30 minutes of turkey breast baking time, bake remaining stuffing for 25 to 30 minutes or until heated through. Place stuffed turkey breast, breast-side up, on rack in roasting pan. Brush with 3 tablespoons melted butter.
Bake, basting occasionally, for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reaches 170 to 175F and turkey breast is no longer pink. Let stand 10 minutes.
Serve for Thanksgiving dinner with Sweet Potatoes with Apples, Caramelized Onion Relish, and Maple Pecan Cornbread, if desired.
See Maple Pecan Corn Bread recipe to use instead of dried bread crumbs; make cornbread a day in advance for dry crumbs.
