Sweet & Savory Stuffing

  • 3 T. butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion (chop the ingredients somewhat small if you are stuffing roasted Cornish game hens)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1-1/2 cups Golden Delicious/Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1 tsp. rubbed sage
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 T. (approx.) apple cider or apple juice
  Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion and sauté about 5 minutes, then add apples and cranberries. Sauté a few more minutes until they soften. Stir in sage, salt and pepper, and transfer to a large bowl to cool, about ten minutes.

Mix in bread crumbs, then toss all with egg to coat. Add a few tablespoons of cider, a little at a time, tossing with mixture until it is moist but not wet. Stuff into Cornish Game Hens, or place into a buttered dish, cover with foil, and bake at 400°F for 30-45 minutes.
