You can really feel good about serving this stuffing at your holiday celebration. Whole grain bread combined with bright apples, fresh herbs, nuts, seeds and even leafy greens make it practically a meal in itself. Gently fold in a few beaten eggs before baking and it becomes a savory bread pudding you can serve all winter long!

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Scatter the bread chunks on a baking sheet and place in the oven to toast.

In a large sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat and cook the onion, celery, apple, sage, rosemary and parsley for 3 to 4 minutes or until the onions become tender.

Place the toasted bread chunks in a large bowl and top with the kale or chard. Pour the hot onion mixture over the greens and add the sausage, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and cranberries and toss to blend. Add enough of the broth to moisten it well. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the stuffing into a well-buttered 9- by 9-inch casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes or until the stuffing is sizzling and golden on top.

Notes

If you are using this to stuff your turkey, be sure to chill the stuffing well, or stuff the turkey just before placing it in the oven to roast.
