apple walnut stuffing

Stuffing is a staple on the Thanksgiving table. I never cared for it growing up and when I was older most of the time all that was to be found on the holiday table was Stovetop- have you look in the ingredients for Stovetop stuffing? For one, it has corn syrup!? Not to mention a few other ingredients I don’t wish to eat! But over the years I have come to actually like eating stuffing at Thanksgiving, and this is one of my favorites!

Apple Walnut Stuffing

 

3 T Butter

1 onion- chopped

5 cloves garlic- minced

1 cup chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, break your bread into small pieces- about 1 inch cubes. If your bread is fresh you can cut it and stick it in the oven for a few minutes to toast up. Set it aside while you prepare the rest.

Chop the onion, mincing the garlic, and peeling and chopping the apples. Heat a skillet to medium and add the butter. Once it’s melted add the onions, garlic, apples, cinnamon and salt/pepper to taste. Saute them until the onions are translucent and the apples are softening.

Stir in the thyme, sage, walnuts and 1 cup chicken stock.

Add the contents of the pan to the bread cubes and stir with a fork to combine. The bread should be pretty wet, you might need the additional 1/2 cup of stock depending on the size of your bread loaf.

Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes until it is crunchy on top and hot all the way through. Serve warm.
