This Apple Bread Stuffing made with herbed stuffing mix, fresh parsley and sage, celery, onions and apples is so delicious and easy to make.
Are you looking for a simple, delicious stuffing to make this Thanksgiving? Then this Apple Bread Stuffing is it! Herbed stuffing mix combined with fresh parsley and sage, celery, onions and apples.
You can't get any simpler than that. Mix all of the ingredients together in one bowl; then bake. I'm no expert on the subject of the "Stuffing vs. Dressing Debate"; however, I grew up calling it stuffing so that's what I'm going to be referencing it here as today.
What else can you use this apple bread stuffing for?
- A Thanksgiving side dish baked in a separate oven safe dish or you can stuff it inside your turkey
- Filler for stuffed mushrooms for a tasty appetizer or fill your favorite squash and bake
- Add some of the stuffing to boneless chicken breasts or a pork loin, roll and tie for a main entree
As you can see, I chose to bake this stuffing in an oven safe dish, as I don't like to stuff my turkey with stuffing. However, if stuffing a turkey is a 'must-have' on your Thanksgiving table, then it is imperative that you use a food thermometer to make sure the center of the stuffing reaches a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F. ~Enjoy!

I love apple stuffing and this looks especially delicious. I love the idea of red onion - can't wait to try it! This Thanksgiving we're skipping the turkey so we can go nuts with sides. Apple stuffing will definitely be on the menu!
Thanks so much Maggie. I prefer all of the sides myself on Thanksgiving day; then usually don't eat the turkey until either later that night or the next day. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Good Thanksgiving Day, Carrie! Have tried it and hands down it is a winner! I had some leftover broth from poached chicken earlier in the week and used it to flavor the breading. Boy, what a crowd pleaser! People were asking me about the ingredients and I told them to check out your website! I will make over and again!
Hi Catherine. I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday and thank you so much for stopping by to let me know you enjoyed the stuffing recipe and for touting my blog. I really appreciate it! 🙂
Sounds interesting. I'm wondering how many this serves?
