  • 1 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 lb stale whole-grain bread, cubed*
  • 200 g/ 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth


  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add celery and onion and stir until softened (about 8-10 minutes). 
  • Add sausage, poultry seasoning, pepper and salt to the pan. Stir until sausage is cooked just through and you can't see any raw sausage (roughly 7-8 minutes)
  • Transfer to a large slow cooker, set to high. Add remaining ingredients: bread, apple, and broth. Stir, cover and cook for 2 hours.
  • *This recipe is a great opportunity to use some old bread! But if you use fresh bread, then lightly toast by baking at 275 F for 25-30 minutes, then let it cool before cutting and cubing.
