Hi, Kristi in the Rada kitchen, and today we’re going to make classic Thanksgiving stuffing.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a cutting board, slice 1 ½ cups cubed whole wheat bread, and ¾ cup cubed white bread. The Rada Bread Slicer is perfect for this job. In a jelly roll pan, spread all the bread cubes in a single layer. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until evenly toasted. Transfer the toasted cubes to a large bowl and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, combine 1 lb ground pork and 1 cup chopped onion. Cook until the meat is brown and crumbly. Add ¾ cup chopped celery, 2 ½ teaspoons of sage, 1 ½ teaspoons of rosemary, and half a teaspoon of thyme. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
Pour sausage mixture over the toasted bread cubes. On a flat surface, core and slice 1 apple and mince 1/3 cup fresh parsley. Add the apple, parsley, and ¾ cup of dried cranberries to the mixture. Drizzle with ¾ cup turkey stock and ¼ cup melted butter. Toss slightly to combine. Spread in a large dish like this Rada Stoneware Rectangular Baker, and bake for 1 hour.
