Pecan and Apple Bread Stuffing

Yield: Serves 8-10


1 loaf rustic bread, cut into 1-in. dice
4 oz. butter
2 med. onions, chopped
2 ea. granny smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-in. dice
11/2 cups pecans, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
1/2 cup Italian parsley leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sage leaves, roughly chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
11/2 - 2 cups chicken or turkey stock


Oven Temperature: 475-500 degrees

  1. Flame Height: 3
  2. Spread bread cubes on a sturdy baking sheet and toast just inside the doorway of the oven for 5-6 minutes or until they are fairly dry and just lightly browned.
  3. In a large skillet melt the butter just inside the doorway. Add the onions and sauté in the center of the oven for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in the apples and pecans and cook 2 more minutes in the center of the oven.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the bread with the onion mixture. Add the herbs and season with salt and pepper. Add enough stock to moisten well. If you are going to bake stuffing inside a turkey, be sure to cool it completely.
  5. Flame Height: 2.8
  6. If you are baking the stuffing separately, add a little more stock. Transfer stuffing to a baking dish and cover with foil. Place in the center of the doorway and bake for 20 minutes, rotate after 10 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and finish baking in the center of the oven for 3-5 minutes or until browned on top.
