Cranberry Apple Stuffing

November 19, 2010

Makes 5 cups of stuffing

I love cranberries and apples. This recipe combines tart and sweet for a delicious stuffing to compliment turkey, goose, duck or pork roast. Stuffing may also be  cooked in a baking dish.

1 egg

3 cups of cubed cut up bread such as a baguette or ciabatta toasted

1 cup plain bread crumbs

1 1/2 cup onions minced

1/2 cup applesauce

1 apple such as a Cortland peeled and cut coarsely

¼ cup of dried cranberries(  preferably naturally sweetened)

¼ cup fresh cranberries chopped

2 celery stalks minced

1 stick of unsalted butter

1½ cups of chicken stock

3 Tablespoons of Bells Seasoning

¼ tsp of fresh ground white pepper

1/2 tsp of sea salt

1 tsp of garlic powder

2 Tablespoons of flat leaf parsley chopped

 In a 10 inch  pan, saute celery, apple and onions in butter  till tender and set aside

 In a large bowl

Mix bread, crumbs, egg, seasonings, cranberries, parsley with applesauce, and half of chicken stock.

Add onion celery mixture to bowl, combine with remaining stock and mix thoroughly.

Let stuffing rest 10 minutes before stuffing in poultry.


  Baked Stuffing 
Coat a large baking dish with a small amount of oil before adding stuffing, cover with foil

Cook at 350 for 35-40 for minutes

Remove foil and cook 10 minutes if you like a crunchy topping
