Walnut-Apple Stuffing
6 cups diced whole grain bread - (firmly packed)
1 1/2 tablespoons light olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped red onion
1 1/2 cups diced peeled tart apple
3 bunches scallions -- minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon savory
3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt -- or to taste
1/2 cup finely-chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons currants
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
1 1/2 cups apple juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the diced bread on a baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until dry and lightly browned.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the red onion and sauté over medium heat until golden. Add the apple and sauté for another 5 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, combine the bread cubes with the onion and apple mixture. Add all the remaining ingredients except the apple juice and toss together. Sprinkle in the apple juice slowly, stirring at the same time to moisten the ingredients evenly.

Transfer the mixture to an oiled shallow 1 1/2-quart baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned and still slightly moist. Stir once during the baking time. Transfer to a covered serving container.

This recipe yields 8 or more servings.

"Vegetarians won't want to eat stuffing that has been cooked in the bird. Here's a tasty stuffing that bakes separately."
