Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

Who else loves stuffing? I think it is one of my favourite parts of a Thanksgiving dinner. This is such a good recipe! Sage, apple and dried cranberries makes for a perfect combination.


3 Tbsp butter or oil

1 stick celery, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/8 tsp chili flakes

1 apple, peeled & diced

1 Tbsp fresh sage, chopped

5 cups bread, diced

1-2 tsp salt *season to taste

1/3 cup shredded cheese

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup shredded cheddar


Preheat oven to 350˙F.

Place half of bread in large bowl, set aside. Heat frying pan on medium heat with butter or oil. Add celery, garlic and onion and cook for 3 minutes until tender. Add thyme and chilli flakes and cook for 1 more minute. Add apple, sage, salt and half of the bread cook for 2 minutes. Pour cooked mixture overtop of other half of bread in the bowl. Add in 1/3 cup cheese and dried cranberries, stir until well combined. Place into appropriate sized baking dish. Top with remainder of cheese.

Bake for 45 minutes until cheese is a light golden brown.


Bread: I have made this with both whole wheat bread and sourdough, both tasted great! Feel free to use whatever type of bread you'd like.

Timing: I always like to plan things ahead of time, especially if making this for a holiday. That way the day of there is very little work to do. You can make this up to two days in advance and bake the day of.

This is the dish, in colour "flame".
