I love this recipe because of its variety of healthy and delicious ingredients. I adapted it from a recipe I found in a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and like to make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas family dinners.

- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄2 cup chopped sweet onions or 1 medium sweet onion

- 3 cups chopped apples (used Red Delicious)

- In a large skillet cook carrots, celery, and onion in hot butter or margarine until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in nutmeg.
- In a very large bowl combine Stovetop Stuffing mix, apples, walnuts, and wheat germ; add carrot mixture. Drizzle with enough broth to moisten, tossing lightly to combine.
