A traditional herb stuffing that is moist and made with sweet apples, dried cranberries and walnuts,
Serves: 5 Approx 5 cups
Ingredients
  • 4 cups wheat bread, cubed (I used flax seed bread at 50 calories a slice)
  • 1 tbsp. butter (I used Brummel and Brown)
  • ½ cup (58 grams)onion, diced
  • ½ cup (38 grams) celery, diced
  • 1½ cups (170 grams) apples, peeled, cored, diced
  • 4 sage leaves, sliced thin or ¼ tbsp dried sage
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ (1 oz) walnuts, chopped small
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place bread cubes onto a baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until the bread is dried. Let the bread cool and place in a large bowl.
  3. Leave the oven on. In a large skillet add butter, onions and celery, cook until softened about 5 minutes. Add the the apples, and seasonings and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add apple mixture into bowl with bread crumbs; add chicken broth, cranberries and walnuts. Mix until all the bread is covered with broth.
  5. Spray an oven safe cooking dish with cooking spray and add your stuffing and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Take the foil off and bake for 15 more minutes. If you want a crispy top to your stuffing bake for a little longer, approx 10 minutes more.
