Preheat oven to 300°. Coat a 3-qt. baking dish with nonstick spray.

Stale bread on a baking sheet in oven until dry, 30 minutes. Remove bread and increase oven temperature to 375°.

Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook kielbasa, in two batches, until brown, 34 minutes per side; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Sweat onions and celery in drippings over medium heat, covered, until softened, 3 minutes. Add apples and sweat, covered, 2 minutes more.

Whisk together cider and mustard and toss with bread, kielbasa, onion mixture, raisins, walnuts, parsley, sage, salt, and pepper in a bowl; transfer to prepared dish. Bake dressing until bread is crisp around edges, 3035 minutes.

Step 1

Brown kielbasa until caramelized around the edges so the flavor stands out in the dressing.
