I tried something new this year, and I think I may like it better than any stuffing that has ever been on our Thanksgiving table. I needed batteries for the camera, so I couldn't take a picture, but it looked pretty as well as tasting yummy. Here is my approximation!
1 bag stuffing bread cubes (I used Brownberry.)
1 large or 2 medium onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, sliced
1 stick butter
3/4 cup chopped nuts
(I used slivered almonds.)
4 cups turkey or chicken stock, or more
3 or 4 apples, cut in cubes
1 cup craisins (dried, sweetened cranberries)
salt & pepper to taste
2 cloves chopped garlic
about 1 T. poultry seasoning, less if you buy the seasoned stuffing mix
about 1/2 cup fresh parsley, snipped into small pieces
Cook onion, garlic and celery in butter till onions are a little softened. Add poultry seasoning. Pour over stuffing mix in large bowl. Add other ingredients and mix well. Add stock, mix again. Bake in large casserole dish or baking pan for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
The color of the craisins was lovely with the celery and onions. This turned out a little on the drier side (that's how I like it), so if you prefer your stuffing to be really moist, you will need to add more liquid.
