Crispy Apple, Cranberry and Walnut Stuffing

By Heather Wirtz November 15, 2016

My kiddos LOVE crispy baked stuffing, so we took one of their favorite sides and added a few festive fall ingredients. Feel free to add all three ingredients to your recipe or just one or two, it is even tasty with the simple addition of tart apples! This recipe can also be made in muffin tins for individual size "stuffing muffins"!

Crispy Apple, Cranberry and Walnut Stuffing


  • 4 cups prepared stuffing/dressing (your favorite recipe or store bought)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced small
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  4. Spoon evenly into a lightly greased baking pan.
