This decadent chestnut stuffing (based on this one) is a must-have for holiday feasting
6 cups dry stuffing cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1 small white onion, chopped
1 cup half and half
1 cup chicken broth
6 ounces chopped roasted chestnuts
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and pepper to taste
4 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 2.5-3 quart baking dish thoroughly with nonstick cooking spray.
Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Sauce celery ribs, apples and onions in the skillet for about 3-4 minutes until just slightly softened. Add sage and stir for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine bread cubes, vegetables, half and half, chicken broth, chestnuts and parsley. Stir thoroughly to coat the bread cubes. Season with salt and pepper, then add the eggs and stir again to combine.
Pour stuffing mixture into the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes until the top is crispy and golden.
