Cranberry/Apple/Pecan Stuffing


Stuffing is one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner. It is absolutely delicious. This year I wanted to try something different for our stuffing. After doing some searching I decided to try something sweet. After combining a few different recipes this delicious stuffing was born. It was so worth all the work it took to make. Try it and I'm sure you will agree.

Cranberry/Apple/Pecan Stuffing

2 (14 oz.) pkgs dry bread crumbs
1 stick real butter
2 green apples
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
2 Tbsp. crushed thyme leaves
1 Tbsp crushed sage leaves
2 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cup craisins

Place bread in a large mixing bowl. In a saucepan melt 1/2 of the butter. Pour over the bread. Dice apples into small pieces. Melt the remaining butter in saucepan and add the apples and sugar. Saute until apples are tender. Pour over the bread. Add apple cider to the pan to deglaze it. Simmer cider until it is reduced by half. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and simmer for about 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the bread. Mix gently. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow bread to absorb liquid. If stuffing it too dry add more stock so it is fairly moist. Put in crock pot on high for 1 hour. Turn to low for another hour or until served.
