Easy Apple Stuffing Recipe

Easy Apple Stuffing Recipe – Very delicious, easy to make turkey stuffing with apples, bread cubes and herbs.

Easy Apple Stuffing Recipe - Very delicious, easy to make turkey stuffing with apples, bread cubes and herbs.



A.K.A. MY favorite Stuffing recipe. I wish I could be cool and not so common, but I’m not. I like some sweet in my savory stuffing.

Hey Hey, pretty people! Quite the events we’ve had to deal with this past week. I pray that every one of you is well and that we will overcome whatever obstacle is thrown at us.  

In food news, I have a serious question. Do you stuff the turkey with the stuffing or do you just put the stuffing on your gorgeous Crate & Barrel white platter that comes out twice a year, and arrange it around the bird? I think I’ve stuffed the bird twice. Stuffing is a side dish in my world. I KNOW that it’s technically only “stuffing” when it’s stuffed inside the bird, but to each his own, ya know?

Also? Is it still called stuffing or is it now a dressing because it’s around the bird and not in it?? Are you liking my questions? Am I annoying? Clueless, for sure.

This dish was part of our “I’m a food-blogger, therefore we must have Thanksgiving dinner before the rest of the country because I need recipes and photos” a few weeks ago and it was awesome. I hadn’t made this stuffing in a couple of years and I knew I wanted something sweet and crunchy, thus the apples were an obvious choice because 1. it’s Fall and 2. the texture! Oh the texture. I knew it would give a bit of pop to the stuffing along with the crunchy celery.

My previous favorite, Sweet Potato Cranberry Stuffing, is awesome, too. Just throwing that out there.

So. I was on the fence about my bread options when it came to creating this dish. I was tempted to try some biscuits, but thought about you all, my readers, and I knew we had to go the easier route. Who’s got time to make biscuits just to chop ’em up and throw ’em back in the oven? Not ME! Soooo. Unseasoned STORE-BOUGHT bread cubes it was! HIGH FIVE!

I tend to reach for the Pepperidge Farms ones, but you can use whatever floats your Thanksgiving bread boat, as long as it’s dried bread cubes. Crouton-like dried. Are you picking up what I’m throwing down? I hope!

And on that note, I would like to eat this whole dish for breakfast.

ENJOY!

  4. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add onions and celery; season with salt and pepper and continue to cook for 4 minutes, or until tender.
  6. Add chicken broth and chopped sage; bring mixture to a boil.
  7. Remove mixture from heat and add to bread cubes mixture; mix until thoroughly combined and evenly moist.
  8. *Transfer the mixture to previously prepared baking dish. (see notes for stuffing the Turkey)
  9. Bake for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and serve.

    1. Hi!! Yes, you can definitely do that, but I find that the texture isn’t quite the same when reheated. I prepare mine right up to the step where it goes into the oven. I then let it cool down to room temp and put it in the fridge. I pop it out of the fridge the next day for about an hour or two, to come to room temp, and then put it in the oven to cook. I hope this helps.

  1. After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
    on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.

    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  2. I knew you would come thru – Ok potatoes recipe secured – now the dressing (hope you don’t mind if I put in a few dried cranberry)
    I’m the only one that likes creamed onions so I’ll make a few.
    NOW TIME IS GETTING SHORT – WHERE’S THE TURKEY!!

    JUST LOVE YOU GAL..

  3. I am one of those food bloggers who is behind the times and probably will get my stuff done for next year right around the holiday. Hehe. I have not made a turkey or anything else remotely Thanksgiving. I’m skipping right to cookie exchange. LOL
    Seriously, your stuffing recipe looks delicious! I’m glad you’re organized so I can borrow some of your recipes this Thanksgiving!
