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.
