Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups dry bread cubes, about 8 slices
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped, about 1 to 1 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preparation:

In a small saute pan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add celery and onion and saute, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and salt; cover and bring to a simmer.

In a large bowl combine the bread cubes, chopped apples, chopped pecans if using, sage, cinnamon, and pepper. Add the broth and vegetable mixture and stir until well moistened. Turn into a 1 1/2-quart shallow casserole. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Or, stuff the cavity of an 8- to 10-pound turkey just before roasting.
