If you like moist stuffing, this recipe is for you. Classic flavours merge to make a delicious stuffing that requires absolutely no oven space. Be sure to use day-old bread that is firm (but not dry like croutons) instead of fresh bread. It will mean the difference between a moist or soggy stuffing. Choose an apple that holds its shape when cooked, such as Cortland, Braeburn or Crispin.
