Appropriate for:

Serves 8


1 teaspoon Canola oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 stalks of celery, diced
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
2 tablespoons ground sage
1 tablespoon poultry spice
1 ½ cups apple cider
1 cup low–sodium chicken stock
12 cups of cubed low–sodium bread (¾ to 1 whole loaf)


In a large fry pan, add oil, onions, celery and apples and sauté until onions are translucent. Add sage, poultry spice, apple cider and chicken stock; simmer for 10 minutes. Place cubed bread on a cooking sheet and bake in a pre-heated 400F oven until the bread is brown, turning the cubes occasional to brown all sides.
