Stuffing - My Favorite!

What is Thanksgiving dinner without stuffing?  It's a Thanksgiving staple.  I like my stuffing with lots of flavor!

2 cups turkey broth
1 cup dried cranberries
6 Tbsp butter
1 cup onion chopped
1 cup chopped celery
2 Granny Smith apples (cored and finely chopped)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
8 cups toasted cubed bread of your choice (I like to use Pepperidge Farm Country Style)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 13 x 9 x 2" baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine turkey broth and cranberries; let soak for 30 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.  Add onion and celery.  Cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently or until tender.  Add apples and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and place in a large bowl.

In the large bowl with vegetables, stir in turkey broth mixture, salt, pepper, and cinnamon.  Add toasted bread, stirring gently to combine.  Spoon mixture into prepared dish and bake for 30 - 50 minutes or until center is set.

This is a tasty recipe - not dry and plain like most.  Give it a try.
