This recipe makes 6-8 cups. It is a nice stuffing for roast turkey or goose, or thick-cut pork chops. Baking the stuffing in the crown roast results in the best flavor, but baking it separately cuts the cooking time.

  • 1 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup chopped onion (1 medium onion)
  • 1/3 Cup chopped celery (about 1 rib)
  • 1/2 Cup chopped apples, fresh cranberries, or craisins (dried cranberries)
  • 11/2 Cups beef or chicken stock (11/2 tsp. CHICKEN or BEEF SOUP BASE in 11/2 Cups water)
  • 4 Cups day-old or crusty French bread, cubed (about 8 good-sized slices)

  • Optional:
    1/4 Cup chopped walnuts

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Mix the BREAKFAST PORK SAUSAGE SEASONING with the pork and fry over medium heat until brown and cooked, crumbling into small hunks with a spatula as the pork cooks. Finely chop the onion, celery, and apple while the pork is cooking. Place the POULTRY SEASONING in a small bowl and cover with a bit of water to bring out the flavor, let stand 5 minutes. When all traces of pink are gone from the pork, push to the side of the pan. If there is more than 2 tsp. of oil in the pan, drain some off; if the pan is quite dry, add 1 tsp. of vegetable oil. Toss in the onions, celery, apples, and POULTRY SEASONING, stir to coat, fry for 1 minute over medium heat, then reduce heat to low. Add 1/2 cup of stock to the pan, stir up all the browned bits from the bottom, stir the pork and the vegetables together, and simmer for 10 minutes. Cube the bread while the vegetables are cooking, then toss in a large bowl with the pork mixture and nuts (if using), adding 1 cup stock and stirring well. Let cool a bit, then place in the crown roast, or refrigerate, covered, overnight until ready to use. If there is not enough room in the roast for all the stuffing, place the extra in a covered bowl and pop in the oven for the final hour of cooking time.

Serves: 8-10.
Prep. time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 1 hour if cooked alone, or as long as the roast takes.
