Cranberry Apple Stuffing

By • November 22, 2010 • 0 Comments



Author Notes: This gluten free stuffing recipe is based on one I found by Sara Foster at Bon Appétit. It has all the components of a good stuffing recipe: bread (gluten free of course in this case), onions, celery, chicken broth, and eggs. For me, these ingredients are the foundation for a variety of delicious stuffing options. http://www.elanaspantry.com/cranberry-apple-stuffing/elanaspantry
