12 cups


  • 3 ½ cups fat-free chicken broth

  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 cup diced yellow onion

  • 1 cup diced celery

  • 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and cubed

  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

  • 2 teaspoons rubbed dried sage

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 16 ounces seasoned bread crumbs

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans


  1. Heat broth in a saucepan over medium heat until boiling, about 5 minutes. Add apricots, remove from the heat, and let sit until apricots are plump, about 15 minutes.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
