Apple and Herb Stuffing is a delicious side dish for your Thanksgiving table that has a seasonal flair! The apples and herbs give it a sweet and savory flavor that is great with turkey and some white wine!
Preheat oven to 350. In a 5 qt dutch oven, heat 2 T olive oil until hot. Add onion and stir occasionally until tender and lightly browned. Add the chopped apples and cook 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 4 T butter and add the bread and chopped herbs, stir often until bread is lightly browned, fragrant and evenly tossed with the herbs (about 6-8 minutes).
Once the apples have cooked 5 minutes, pour in 2 c water and 2 T butter and heat to boiling. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until slightly reduced, and add the bread/herb mixture. Stir until well mixed.
Optional - put the mixture into an oven safe 8x8 casserole dish and bake for 15-20 minutes until slightly browned.
The original recipe calls for a 16 oz package of herb seasoned stuffing. This is a great option for an even quicker dish!
