This is decidedly delicious and much easier than stuffing the turkey on Christmas morning.

  • Portion size 3 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups chopped mixed dried fruit (apples, peaches, pears, apricots, prunes)
  • 5 celery finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 onions chopped
  • 4 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 14 cups cubed day-old Italian bread
  • 14 cups cubed day-old French bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted hazelnut
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable stock

Method

In large skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat; cook fruit, celery, garlic, onions, sage, marjoram, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until softened.

In large bowl, toss celery mixture with bread. (Make-ahead: dressing can be prepared to this point and frozen in airtight container for up to 2 weeks; thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours before continuing.) Sprinkle with nuts. Melt remaining butter with 1 cup (250 mL) of the stock; drizzle over stuffing and toss to combine. Transfer to greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Cover and bake in top third of 375°F (190°C) oven for 30 minutes.

Stir in remaining stock; bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden and heated through.
