Go way beyond bread crumbs with a stuffing recipe fortified with apples, dried cherries and chopped pecans. What a substantial—and savory—side.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 package (16 oz) herb-seasoned stuffing mix crumbs
  • 2 medium red apples, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cherries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 1/2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Grease 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with shortening or cooking spray. In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  • 2
    In large bowl, thoroughly mix cooked onion and remaining ingredients. Use 4 cups of the stuffing to fill body cavities of 12-pound turkey (do not pack stuffing because it will expand during roasting). Place remaining stuffing in baking dish. Cover with foil; refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • 3
    Roast stuffed turkey as directed in recipe. Bake stuffing in baking dish with turkey for the last 40 to 50 minutes of baking time or until thoroughly heated (165°F).
