There are a zillion different recipes for Thanksgiving stuffing, but we feel
pretty confident that we’ve got one of the best! Our take on it is an apple raisin stuffing – a perfect recipe for a sweet finished product, although we’ll admit there are some great savory ones as well. Try this apple raisin stuffing recipe at Thanksgiving and let us know in the comments how it turned out!
Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
- 3/4 cup finely chopped onion (diced)
- 1 1/2 cups chopped celery (cut 1 cm thick)
- 2 cup margarine or butter (melted)
- 7 cups soft bread cubes
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 3 cups finely chopped apple (about 2 large apples, cubed)
- 3/4 cup raisins
- Dice 3/4 cup of onions, and cut 1 1/2 cups celery in 1cm pieces.
- Bring a large pot to boil on medium heat and add 2 cups of margarine or butter and let melt. (DDF Tip: It’s important to melt your butter on medium heat rather than high, or there’s a good chance it’ll burn)
- Add diced onions, cut celery and about two-thirds (5 cups) of bread cubes. Mix thoroughly and allow the combination to cook down and soften. If your pot resembles this image, then you’re in a good spot.
- Transfer pot ingredients into a large bowl and add all remaining ingredients, including the leftover 2 cups of bread cubes. (DDF Tip: These bread cubes will not be as soft as the original five, which will add texture and flavor to the overall finished stuffing.)
- Mix all ingredients thoroughly and transfer into a large glass baking dish – it should look something like the image to the right.
- Bake for 30 minutes and serve hot wherever your Thanksgiving may plans take you this season. Enjoy!
