Cranberry Apple Stuffing – an easy delicious simple stuffing recipe that can be baked in a casserole dish and served with roast chicken, turkey or pork.
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.
- 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves chopped garlic
- 6 cups crusty French or Italian bread cut in small cubes
- 3 tbsp dry oregano
- ½ tsp dry sage
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- Salt to season
- 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
- 2 small apples peeled and diced
- ¼ cup melted butter
- 1 cup chicken or turkey stock
Sauté garlic in olive oil and add to remaining ingredients. Toss together well and use as a stuffing for chicken, turkey or a loin roast of pork.
You can also cook it in a covered casserole at 300 degrees F for about ½ hour.
