  1. In a large skillet, saute apples, almonds, onion and celery in butter for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in salt, cinnamon and poultry seasoning. In a large bowl, combine bread cubes, raisins and apple mixture. Add cider and egg substitute; toss to mix.
  2. Just before baking, loosely stuff turkey with half of the stuffing. Place remaining stuffing in a greased 2-qt. baking dish; refrigerate until ready to bake. Skewer turkey opening; tie drumsticks together. Place breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Pour water into pan.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 4-1/2 to 5 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees F for the turkey and 165 degrees F for the stuffing, basting occasionally with pan drippings. (Cover loosely with foil if turkey browns too quickly.)
  4. Bake additional stuffing, covered, for 30-40 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Cover turkey and let stand for 20 minutes before removing stuffing and carving.
  5. For gravy, pour pan drippings into a 4-cup measuring cup; skim off fat. Add enough water to measure 4 cups. Pour into a saucepan. Stir in bouillon, poultry seasoning and pepper. Bring to a boil. In a bowl, combine flour and milk until smooth; whisk into boiling broth. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Serve with turkey and stuffing.

This is absolutely the best stuffing I've ever had. I will never go back to my old standby after tasting this one.

I'm a stuffing lover and this was great. I ommited the raisins and added 3/4 lb mild italian sausage (already cooked). I used less almonds. Did not dry out on me, but I cook my stuffing inside ...

we used this recipe this year as it was my first time making homemade stuffing. Let me just say it was a hit, even with all my none stuffing eaters, i left out the nuts and raisins, but they we...

Used the stuffing part of this recipe on Thanksgiving with a few alterations ... skipped the almonds, used dried cranberries instead of raisings, and downsized the recipe for a 12 lb turkey (3/4...

I followed the apple stuffing recipe. I replaced the almonds with pine nuts, about 1 cup. I used less cinnamon, only a pinch. Since I didn't want a dairy product with the turkey, I used more ...

I made this for the day after Christmas just for a twist. The overall opinion was to give it a 3 or 4, mainly because it was a bit too flavorful than typical stuffing. The crunch of the almond...

I love this stuffing! I have done it every year for Christmas for the last 5 years, and everyone always raves about it. I don't stuff the bird though always make it separate. Even goes well with...
