Apple Cranberry Walnut Stuffing

You can make 101 variations of this, but here is what I used today.

Apple Cranberry Walnut Stuffing

Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz. pkg. dressing/stuffing
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 apples: peeled, cored, and cubed
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup chopped sage
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts*
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In large bowl, combine stuffing, celery, onion, cranberries, apples, parsley, sage and walnuts.
  3. Mix in apple juice, chicken broth and butter, tossing lightly but well.
  4. Place in a 13x9 pan or 3-quart oven-safe casserole dish.
  5. Cover and bake 30 minutes until heated through. To make it crisper, uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer.
  6. If stuffing inside turkey, ensure stuffing reaches 165 degrees before serving.

Just curious how much walnuts did you add? It is in the title but I didn't see how much you add? It looks really yummy . . . . I would guess maybe a cup of walnuts would work.
