Transfer toasted bread into a large bowl.
Chop 3/4 cup of celery and set aside.
In a large skillet, over medium heat add cooking oil. Once cooking oil has heated add onions and ground turkey meat. Cook until well browned, breaking up the large chunks with tongs.

Pour ground turkey mixture over cubed bread.
Chop and core your apple, add two mixture. Next add cranberries and mix together using tongs.
