INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add celery and onion; cook and stir 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in apples and cranberries.
  • 2 Spray inside of slow cooker with no stick cooking spray. Add stock and seasonings; stir to blend. Stir in bread cubes and vegetable mixture. Cover.
  • 3 Cook 3 hours on LOW or until desired texture.

TIPS AND TRICKS

For best results, use crisp sweet-tart red apples, such as Empire, Baldwin or Honeycrisp.

For moister stuffing, increase chicken stock to 3 cups.

For drier stuffing, allow bread cubes to air-dry overnight. Optional Ingredients:

Cook 1/2 pound crumbled sausage with the celery and onion.

Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans when adding the apples and cranberries.
