I'm not a huge stuffing fan. It's okay but it's not something I love or even make well. The few times I've made it, it's either not done enough or too soggy.
But this stuffing, my friends, rocked my world. I'm ashamed to admit how much I ate. Well, not too ashamed. It was really worth it.
The flavors went perfect together! I used whole wheat bread but wonder how it would be with a cinnamon raisin bread? Hmmm...
I will have to try that next time.
Caramelized Autumn Fruit Stuffing Recipe
Adapted from How Sweet it Is
1 large butternut squash, chopped
2 apples, chopped
2 pears, chopped
5 tbsp. butter or Earth Balance
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
6 - 8 slices of bread
1 tbsp. brown sugar
Add squash, apples and pears with 1 tbsp. butter in a hot pan. Toss with cinnamon and salt. Stir a few times to coat and combine. Let caramelize, stirring occasionally for about 15 - 20 minutes.
While the fruit is caramelizing, toast bread. Cut into cubes that are about the same size as the fruit. Place in a large bowl.
Once fruit is caramelized, add to a bowl with bread. Mix to combine.
Spoon stuffing into a 9 x 13 in. pan. Melt the remaining butter and stir in the brown sugar. Pour butter over stuffing. Bake for about 20 minutes.
