Instructions


1

Preheat oven to 275 degrees

Cut the bread loaf into 1 inch cubes and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with 2 Tbs pecan oil and bake in oven until slightly golden and the bread is toasted and dry, about 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and set the bread aside.

Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees.

4

Heat 2 Tbs of canola oil in a large skillet. Sauté the onions and celery until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in the apples and the fresh herbs and sauce another 3 minutes.

5

In a large bowl, toss together the toasted bread crumbs, sautéed vegetables and apples, chopped pecans, whisked egg, salt and pepper blend and chicken stock.

6

Butter a large baking dish and place the mixture inside and drizzle with the remaining butter.

7

Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.

8

Uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until golden brown on top.

Chef's Tip

The dressing can be made a day ahead and stored in the refrigerator. When ready to bake, let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before baking.
