Here's a delicious recipe for apple stuffing, perfect for Thanks giving or any holiday meal: 

Ingredients: – 1 loaf of day-old bread (about 1 lb), cut into cube – 2 tablespoons unsalted butter – 1 large onion, chopped – 2 stalks celery, chopped – 2 apples, cored and diced (use a firm variety like Granny Smith)

– 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional) – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 2 teaspoons dried sage – 1 teaspoon dried thyme – 1 teaspoon dried rosemary – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon – Salt and black pepper, to taste – 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth – Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

nstructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set aside. 2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and celery, and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.

1. Add the diced apples and chopped nuts (if using) to the skillet. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, until the apples are slightly softened. 2. Stir in the minced garlic, dried sage, thyme, rosemary, cinnamon, salt, and black pepper. Cook for another minute, until fragrant.

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread cubes with the apple mixture from the skillet. Toss until the bread is evenly coated with the apple and herb mixture. 2. Pour the chicken or vegetable broth over the bread mixture, and gently toss until well combined. The bread should be moistened but not soggy. Add more broth if needed.

1. Transfer the stuffing mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Cover the dish with aluminum foil. 2. Bake the stuffing in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, covered, until heated through. 3. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the top is golden brown and crispy.

1. Remove the stuffing from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired. 2. Serve the apple stuffing alongside your favorite Thanksgiving dishes and enjoy!

This apple stuffing is flavorful, aromatic, and the perfect accompaniment to roast turkey or chicken. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding dried cranberries, chopped apricots, or other nuts and herbs to suit your taste preferences.
