Since discovering stuffing last year, the kind that doesn’t come in a box and doesn’t contain celery, that is, I have been counting down the days until I could create another. Actually, I just came up with this idea last week, but it’s genius if I do say so myself.
Apple, cheddar, and caramelized onions, are all great on their own, they are all great together, and then they are magnified in stuffing form. And by stuffing, I am told this creation is more of a story bread pudding, but I am just going to call it stuffing, and suggest everyone makes it for Thanksgiving.
Also, if you missed my stuffing from last year. It was also amazing, and I do suggest you consider making at least one! Butternut Squash and Mushroom Stuffing.
Apple, Caramelized Onion & Cheddar Stuffing
Be original this Thanksgiving and make this stuffing
- 1 day old sourdough bread
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pink lady apple
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 3 oz cheddar cheese cubed
- 1 green onion chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Spray a 1 quart ceramic dish with cooking spray.
Cut the sourdough into one inch cubes,
In a large skillet, add the olive oil, onions, garlic. Cook on low, for 10 minutes until onions look caramelized.
Chop the apple into small cubes. Add to the skillet for 1 to two minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the 2 eggs and vegetable broth.
Add the cubed bread, onions, and apples and 2 oz of cubed cheddar to the bowl. Mix until the bread has soaked up all the liquid.
Pour the stuffing mixture into the pan. Add the rest of the cheddar between cubes of bread.
Cook for 40 minutes in the oven or until the top is crispy, and the bottom is not soggy.
