Spread bread cubes on large cookie sheets; place in oven at 250¯F for 10 minutes; remove from oven; reserve.
Cut sausage into thick slices. Brown 5 minutes on each side in a medium-size skillet, then break into small pieces. Cook 1 minute longer or until no trace of pink remains. Combine with bread cubes in a large bowl.
Pour off drippings from skillet; measure; return 2 tablespoons. Add onions, and saute until tender. Stir in water and apples; heat to boiling. Pour over sausage mixture; add salt; toss lightly until evenly moist.
Makes approximately 10 cups.
