The sweetness of apples rounds out this traditional bread stuffing.

This recipe can be used to stuff a 12- to 14-pound turkey or baked in a separate casserole dish.


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups chopped onion (1 large onion)
1 1/2 cups chopped celery (about 6 ribs)
1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
12 cups torn artisan white bread (about a 1-pound loaf)
3 cups diced honey crisp apples (about 3 apples)
2 1/2 cups reduced-sodium turkey or chicken broth


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; sauté until tender, about 12 minutes. Add sage, salt and pepper.
  3. Place bread in a large bowl. Add onion mixture, any liquid from cooking the vegetables, apples and broth; toss well.
  4. Transfer stuffing to a 13 x 9-inch baking pan and bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. If the stuffing seems too dry, add more broth. Return to oven and bake 20 minutes. Makes 12 cups.
