Roasted Grape and Pecan Stuffing
Roasted Grape and Pecan Stuffing

Caramelized grapes add sweetness. Prep it the night before and keep it in the fridge until you're ready to bake.

Serves 10
Work: 50 minutes
Total: 1 hour 20 minutes

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups (10 ounces) red grapes
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 ribs celery, diced
1 1-pound loaf country bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (10 cups)
2 tablespoons finely chopped sage
1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
6 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and saute grapes until soft and caramelized, about 10 minutes; set aside.
2. In the same pan cook sausage, breaking into small pieces, until golden brown. Remove sausage but leave fat in pan. Saute onion and garlic until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add celery and cook until just tender.
3. In a large bowl combine onion mixture, grapes, bread cubes, herbs, pecans, salt, and pepper. Separately whisk together chicken broth, butter, and Worcestershire sauce, then stir into stuffing.
4. Transfer to a 3-quart baking dish. Keep covered and chilled for up to a day. To cook, cover and bake at 350 degrees F. until heated through, about 20 minutes. Remove cover and bake until golden, another 15 minutes.
