white bread cubes
diced apple without peel
chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons
this makes a great thanksgiving stuffing for turkey. however, i would suggest cutting down the amount of butter called for, and add some chicken broth (about one cup). this makes the stuffing more moist and cuts down on the fat content.
I made this for Christmas dinner and it was pretty good, but not as good as I had hoped. If you follow the recipe as written, it makes a LOT of dressing-- definitely more than will fit into a 2 quart baking dish (8x8) as the recipe calls for. I put it in a 9x13 pan an it was almost too much for that! I used a 16 oz package of Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix (right at 7 cups) and a little less butter (I poured some pan juices from my baked chicken over it) but otherwise followed the rest of the recipe pretty closely. The apple in it was very good and that's what my husband particularly enjoyed. Sunmaid now makes "baking raisins" which are already plumped up-- no need for soaking, which was very convenient. I think if I try this again I'll make only half and will try to use plain bread cubes instead. It was good, just not as yummy as I had hoped for.
A quick shortcut is to use StoveTop stuffing and add all the fixin's to it. Taste great and so easy!
YUM! I make this stuffing every year now for Thanksgiving and it's always a hit. Use whole wheat bread for a nutty flavour. Add about 1/4 cup of chicken broth otherwise it's too dry.
This is the same recipe that my grandmother used to make years ago. It is excellent!!! A nice addition or change to "Sage" dressing.
I am marking this down - not for taste but for lack of broth. I used 1/2 cup of butter (could have used less) but had to add quite a bit of broth to pull this together. Tasty with the broth - without it it would have been really dry.
Very good! I took the suggestion from another reviewer of using Stovetop stuffing mix since I didn't have stale bread to use.
This dressing is wonderful! I cut down the amount of butter in it by 1/2 (trying to be health conscious), and added some chicken broth (as others suggested). I cooked it in the chicked and it was wonderful! will definetly use many more times! I also used 1/2 golden raisins and 1/2 dark raisin b/c i ran out.
