Author: Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes Yield: 6- 8 servings 1x Category: Dinner Method: Bake Cuisine: American Scale 1x 2x 3x Ingredients 6 cups chopped multigrain bread, stale, 1-inch cubes 1 cup chopped pre-cooked kielbasa sausage, 1/2-inch pieces 1 small Honeycrisp apple, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces 1/2 medium-sized yellow onion, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces 1/2 cup fresh cranberries 1 teaspoon dried sage (rubbed not ground) 1 teaspoon dried rosemary 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 large egg 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil Instructions Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 8 x 10 inch baking dish. (A similar size dish will work). In a large bowl, toss together the bread, sausage, apple, onion and cranberries. Sprinkle on the sage, rosemary, salt and pepper and toss again. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and oil. Drizzle over the bread mixture and toss until everything is evenly coated. Don’t toss too much as the bread will start to crumble. Spread the stuffing mixture out into the prepared baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until the stuffing is golden brown. Serve immediately. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy within 2-3 days. Notes The recipe calls for multi-grain bread, but you can use any kind of bread you like. Just make sure it’s stale (a few days old). To keep this stuffing dairy-free, make sure the bread you’re using is dairy-free. I used dried sage and rosemary, but if you prefer, you can use fresh. Just triple the amount of fresh herbs you use. Make sure your apples and onions are chopped into small pieces (about 1/4-inch) to ensure they cook evenly with the rest of the stuffing ingredients.
