Lane Southern Orchard's Apple Pecan Dressing
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups dry wheat bread cubes, about 8 slices
2 medium apples, peeled cored and finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp ground sage
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp pepper
In a small saucepan, combine chicken broth, celery, onion, butter and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine bread cubes, chopped apples, chopped pecans, sage, cinnamon and pepper. Pour broth and vegetable mixture over the bread cubes. Gently stir to moisten. Spoon into a greased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Can also be used as stuffing for an 8 to 10-lb. turkey.
