Ingredients

  • Semolina bread
  • 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups chopped onions, leeks or scallions
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken or turkey broth
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • Apples, cut into small chunks and sauteed in butter
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped if large

Method

Step 1

Chop the semolina bread into 1/2-inch cubes to make 16 cups. Stale bread works best for stuffing-if yours is fresh, spread out the cubes on baking sheet and dry in a 300 degrees F oven, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2

Heat 1 stick butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, sage, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth; bring to a simmer and remove from the heat.

Step 3

Beat the eggs and parsley in a large bowl; stir in the bread cubes, the vegetable-broth mixture, the prepared apples, dried cranberries and apricots.

Step 4

Transfer the mixture to a buttered 3-to-4-quart baking dish and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees F, 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden, about 20 more minutes.
