  4. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer sausage to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.
  5. Melt butter in the same pan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Gradually stir in chicken broth and dried cherries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2-4 minutes or until cherries are softened.
  6. Remove from the heat. Stir in the herbs. Carefully add bread cubes and sausage; toss until well coated. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon half of the stuffing into a greased 2-quart baking dish.
