Apple Pecan Dressing Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This tasty apple pecan dressing can be cooked in a pan or in the bird.


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


In a small saucepan, combine chicken broth, celery, onion, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, combine bread cubes, chopped apples, chopped pecans, sage, cinnamon, and pepper. Pour broth and vegetable mixture over the bread cubes. Gently stir to moisten. Spoon into a greased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. May also use as a stuffing for an 8 to 10 pound turkey.

I have been making this dressing for yrs, I do substitute the wheat bread with corn bread. I'm from the south and my family loves cornbread dressing. I always get compliments on this dressing.
