An easy Herb Apple Stuffing with Pecans recipe studded with festive Fall flavors is sure to be a hit at Thanksgiving! Serve with turkey, pork or chicken.



1 loaf French bread, cubed

2 Tablespoons butter

1 yellow onion, diced

3 stalks celery, diced

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Freshly cracked pepper

1 honeycrisp apple, diced

1 Tablespoon fresh sage, minced

1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced

1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, stems removed

1/2 cup dried cranberries

3/4 cup pecans

3 cups chicken stock

6 Tablespoons melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread bread out into one even layer (may need two baking sheets). Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly toasted.

In a saute pan, add in butter on medium heat until melted. Add in onion, celery, salt and pepper. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add in apple and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until tender.

In a large bowl, toss together toasted bread, sautéed onions, celery, apple, herbs, cranberries, pecans, chicken stock and melted butter. Place into a large casserole dish, cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.


Use a Brioche or Challah loaf for a richer, buttery flavor.
