Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Everyone in our family loves a turkey dinner and we don’t need any special occasion as an excuse to roast a whole bird. We often have what we call “Casual Turkey” night which is roast turkey, Savoury Stuffing, gravy and French Fries; a pure comfort food meal if there ever was one.

We don’t always roast a whole turkey though, and as often as not, we simply roast a turkey breast and serve it with Cranberry Apple Stuffing and Cranberry Apple Sauce; a meal that is easily prepared in half the time as a more traditional roast turkey dinner.

The very simple recipe for the Cranberry Apple Sauce is also posted this morning.

I just season it, open roast it and use a meat thermometer to take it to 180 degrees. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

Sometimes I buy a whole breast and carefully remove the breast bone with a sharp fillet knife, being careful not to break the skin. I then stuff the middle of the breast with your favorite stuffing and tie the whole thing up with butcher string and roast until the center hits 180 degrees F on your trusty meat thermometer. Again let it reast for 10 minutes before carving.
