Recipe for Apple Walnut Sage Stuffing. This recipe comes to us from Chef Dario Marquez of Fort Lauderdale, Florida's Mistral restaurant.


  • 1/4 pound chopped bacon
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 6 ounces onion, finely diced
  • 6 ounces carrot, finely diced
  • 6 ounces celery, finely diced
  • 8 cups coarse bread crumbs
  • 4 large unpeeled apples, finely diced
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup fresh chopped sage
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook bacon until almost crisp. Add butter and sauté the onion, carrot and celery for about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the apples, thyme, bay leaves, sage, parsley and cinnamon. Cook for another five minutes and then add the apple juice. Bring to a boil and then take it off the heat and place mixture in a large mixing bowl. Add the walnuts and bread crumbs. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Use to stuff chicken or turkey, or place in a covered buttered baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes.
