Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Stuffing. Gluten free stuffing, no less.  While I generally find stuffing to be a time consuming and complex dish to make, I have chosen one that is on the easier side; though be forewarned, I would hardly call this dish easy.

This gluten free Cranberry Apple Stuffing recipe is based on one I found by Sara Foster at Bon Appétit.  It has all the components of a good stuffing recipe: bread (gluten free of course in this case), onions, celery, chicken broth, and eggs.  For me, these ingredients are the foundation for a variety of delicious stuffing options.

Cranberry Apple Stuffing
  1. Soak dried cranberries in chicken broth for 1-2 hours
  2. Heat grapeseed oil in a large skillet, over medium heat
  3. Saute onion until soft, about 15 minutes
  4. Add celery and saute for 10 more minutes
  5. Add apple and parsley and saute for 3 minutes, until apples just begin to soften
  6. Transfer mixture to a very large bowl
  7. Bake bread cubes on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for 5-10 minutes at 350°
  8. Cool bread cubes for 20 minutes after removing from oven
  9. Stir bread cubes into vegetable mixture
  10. Whisk eggs and salt into cranberry-chicken broth mixture
  11. Add egg-cranberry mixture to stuffing, tossing to combine
  12. Transfer stuffing to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish
  13. Bake stuffing at 350° uncovered until cooked through and browned on top, about 40 minutes
  14. Let stand 10-15 minutes
  15. Serve

I wanted to thank everyone who commented and shared their favorite Vitamix recipe (or what they would make with a Vitamix). I also wanted mention that Vitamix will be holding a huge factory sale at their facility on November 20th in Olmsted Falls, as well as special deals online.

Have a great weekend everyone!
