Apple Veal Stuffing

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a little stuffing, but what are you to do when the only stuffing options are bread-based? Fret not! This veal-based stuffing is “a meal unto itself” as described by my brother-in-law, Chris, and it’s a very satisfying substitute for traditional stuffing.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the ground veal with the garlic powder, anise, onion powder, black pepper, fennel seeds, paprika, salt, and cayenne.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the meat, leaving it slightly under-done. Remove the skillet from the heat, and set the meat aside. When the meat has cooled, place it in the large bowl.
  3. Add the mushrooms, celery, and onion to the skillet, and cook them until they are tender. Transfer the vegetables from the skillet to the bowl. Add the cranberries, chestnuts, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and sage. Allow the mixture to cool, and refrigerate it overnight.
  4. Peel, core, and chop the granny smith apples. Then, add them to the meat mixture. For outside stuffing, bake the dish uncovered for the last 30 minutes during the cooking of the turkey.
