Cranberry Apple Stuffing
Why I Love This Recipe
I am currently planning with my husband's aunt for the "clan" dinner and I asked her about stuffing since she didn't mention anyone bringing it or her making it. I offered (I am already making stuffing the same day for the dinner I am hosting in the evening for my family!) and she said she had this recipe. I am used to what she deems "savory" stuffings, but I am up for trying anything once and I tested it last night - great :)
Cranberry Apple Stuffing combines tart fruit with savory herbs for a delicious flavor twist. Serve this colorful stuffing with roast chicken or pork, or with a holiday turkey.
