Savory Apple Stuffing - Ripieno di Mele

Granny Smith Apples

This stuffing is a favorite of mine because I love the tartness of the apples. It's great for stuffing a goose. I make as an alternate for people who do not like the sausage stuffing.


1/2 cup pancetta, diced or butter
Celery leaves and stalks, chopped 1 cup
Red onion, chopped 1 cup
6 Granny Smith apples
1/2 teaspoon of fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon of fresh sage
1/4 cup parsley chopped
1 cup stale bread crumbs

Fry pancetta in a large skillet until almost crisp; remove from pan.
To the grease, add celery, onion and parsley and cook over low heat.
Add diced apples and seasonings and cook about 10 minutes.
Add bread crumbs and fried pancetta.  Stir lightly over low heat about 2 minutes.
Place the stuffing in a casserole and baste occasionally with turkey juices.
