Remove turkey from pan; reserve drippings for gravy.

For Apple-Sage Stuffing:
In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, saut� sausage until no pink remains. Remove one-half of the fat from the pan. Add vegetables; saut� 3 minutes or until vegetables are clear. Add sherry; cook until almost dry. Add flour; whisk until glossy. Add chicken stock, sage and thyme; bring to a boil. Add bread cubes. Allow mixture to cool, then fold in whipped eggs.

For Apple Gravy:
In a medium pan, heat shallots, apple juice and chardonnay until almost dry. Add drippings from the turkey pan; bring to a boil. In a separate pan, heat turkey fat and flour until smooth; gradually whisk into the first pan. Cook 15 minutes over very low heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add chicken stock as needed.
