  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a large pan or Dutch oven over low heat. Add onion and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add broth-apricot mixture, apples, thyme, sage, and pepper; stir until combined. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

  • Add bread crumbs gradually, folding them in until stuffing is moist but not sticky. Mix in the pecans. Transfer to a casserole dish and cover with a lid or aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If stuffing a turkey, let stuffing cool to room temperature. Then pack stuffing loosely in the cavity and neck and cook turkey based on weight. Bake any excess stuffing as directed in the recipe.
