Apple stuffing (serves 6)

apple and cranberry stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving1 large onion
2 sticks of celery
2 tbsp butter
2 rashers of bacon
2 handfuls of dried cranberries
2  – 3 apples ( a cup full of diced apple)
1 handful of chopped pecans
2 cups of breadcrumbs – roughly processed – you want some lumps
Approx 3 cups apple juice
1 egg yolk
Salt and pepper

  • Dice the onion, the celery, the bacon and peel and dice the apple
  • Fry in the butter until cooked through – about five mins
  • Off the heat add the cranberries the pecans and the breadcrumbs and season well
  • Pour in the egg and stir in the apple juice until the stuffing mixture binds together – you may need more or, if you’re using super dry breadcrumbs, you may need a little less
  • Tip into a baking tray
  • Once the turkey comes out of the oven to rest, turn up the oven to 400 and roast for 20 – 25 mins

This originally appeared as part of a full Thanksgiving dinner recipe, but could just as easily be part of a Christmas dinner, or Sunday lunch.
