Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, and Bread Stuffing with Apples

We feature this holiday stuffing every Thanksgiving, it's our absolute favorite!


1 pound butternut or any other winter squash, cubed

1 pound brussels sprouts, halved

1 medium apple, cut into a 1/2 inch dice

2 shallots, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided into 2 tbsp and 1 tbsp

1 cup onion, diced

1 cup celery, diced

10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain, or, if you are gluten free, Schar Multigrain Bread will work nicely. Prior to preparing the recipe, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.

1 1/2 cups vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)

2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh thyme

1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup pecans or walnuts

Sea salt and pepper to taste


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, apples, and shallots in 2 tbsp oil and season well with salt and pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.

Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Saute the onion and celery till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.

Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries, pecans, and seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot. And delicious.

Unbelievably good! So different and delicious! Made it for Thanksgiving dinner this year...Which was lobster tails and filet mignon and THIS dish was the hit if the meal! Seriously- we talked about this dish for days! Seems like it would be heavy but it wasn’t. Do yourself a favor and make it.
