Ingredients
  • 6 cups day old artisan whole wheat bread, cut up into 1" cubes
  • 1½ cups vegetable stock (chicken stock can be used too)
  • ½ cup white wine (omit if necessary and just add more stock)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts, chopped
  • 1 cup celery (about 2 stalks), chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Honey Crisp apples, chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1½ tsp. poultry seasoning
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Cooking spray for dish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an oval 11" dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Heat broth in the microwave until just hot and soak cranberries for 30 min. (I love to do this with raisins also to plump them up before using just using water).
  3. In a small saute pan melt the butter and cook the onions and celery until the onions are translucent. About 5 min.
  4. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl and then add the onions, celery, cranberries, pistachio nuts, apples, salt, poultry seasoning, pepper, stock and wine if using.
  5. Mix together well and place in prepared dish. Bake for 30-40 min. or until apples are tender and the bread is starting to toast slightly.
