Whole Grain Stuffing with Apples


1 16-oz. loaf whole grain bread, cubed (stale or fresh)
2 cups onions, diced
2 cups celery, diced
2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon sage
1 Granny Smith apple, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In using fresh bread, place the cubed bread on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until slightly toasted.  If you are using stale bread you can skip this step.
  3. Meanwhile, place the onions, celery, low-sodium broth, thyme and sage in a saucepan.  Simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the liquid is reduced by half.
  4. Place the toasted bread and chopped apples in a large bowl.  Pour the onion mixture over the bread.  Toss to mix.
  5. Coat baking dish with cooking spray and spread stuffing mixture.  Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
