Dress up your dishes with some Apple Cranberry Stuffing

I am the first to admit that I buy boxed stuffing or the frozen Butterball stuffing (that stuff is amazing!) rather than making my own stuffing from scratch, but my husband enjoys being adventurous in the kitchen and once tried his hand at stuffing. While it was a slightly sweeter stuffing than I am accustomed to, it was still very good! Here is his recipe… Ingredients: 1/2 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped celery 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 cup hard butter 2/3 cup chopped cranberries 1/2 grated apple 5 cups bread squares 1 tbsp brown sugar 1/4 tsp...
