Description

Cranberry walnut bread paired with sautéed apples, onions and rosemary is exactly what your holiday table needs! Hello cranberry walnut apple stuffing!


Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary, chopped
  • 1 loaf cranberry walnut bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (see note below for substitution with regular bread)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock (homemade recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil spray or cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until translucent, approximately 5-7 minutes. Add apples and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes, or until softened. Stir in garlic and rosemary, cook for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
  3. Place chopped bread into a large bowl and pour cooked onions on top.
  4. In a small bowl, combine egg, heavy cream, and chicken stock, salt and pepper. Pour sauce over bread mixture and toss to combine.
  5. Pour bread mixture into a small baking pan or 2-quart ramekin coated with olive oil spray. Bake for 30 minutes or until the stuffing begins to brown around the edges.
  6. Serve and garnish with some extra cranberries (optional).

Notes

If you’re not using bread with cranberries and walnuts already in it, add 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/4 cup of toasted walnut pieces before baking, then toss to combine.
