This isn’t your Grandmother’s stuffing recipe. It’s a new take on an old favorite and believe us, your family will never want to eat another stuffing again. Better stuffing means better bread, so go the extra mile at the bakery to make this apple-walnut stuffing pop. You’ll need: 1 sweet onion, 2 medium Granny Smith apples, ¾ lb. mild ground pork sausage, 1 cup of celery, 2 large Garlic cloves, 1 cup toasted walnuts, ¼ cup fresh parsley, 2 tsp. Kosher salt, ½ tsp. Freshly ground pepper, 2 ½ cup of low-sodium turkey broth, ¼ cup melted butter,12 c. assorted bread cubes and fresh parsley.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Sauté sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium heat 6 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink. Add apples and next 2 ingredients; sauté 5 more minutes or until apples are tender. Stir in walnuts and next 5 ingredients. Transfer to a large bowl, and let cool 10 minutes.
Fold in bread and broth until well blended. Spoon into a well-greased 3-quart or 13- x 9-inch baking pan. Brush top generously with butter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes or until top is crusty and brown. Garnish, if desired.
