DIRECTIONS

  • In a large casserole-type pot, heat 1 tbsp of butter.
  • Add the pumpkin, drizzle with maple syrup and lightly saute for 8-10 minutes until lightly coloured and begins to soften.
  • Remove from pan and keep to one side.
  • Add the remainder of the butter to the pan and throw in the onions and gently saute for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the sage and continue to saute for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Add back the pumpkin, pecans and the cranberries and gently stir over low heat.
  • Add the 3 cups of day-old diced bread.
  • Stir gently and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add half the chicken stock and bake in an oven at approximately 285 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  • Check from time to time and if you need to add a little more chicken stock, do so;; if not, allow the bread, pecans and pumpkin to absorb all the moisture and lightly caramelize.
  • Note: Savoury stuffing can be used as is, or to stuff a turkey, chicken or Cornish hen.
  • You stuff the bird using the stuffing at the point before the stuffing goes into the oven.
