Apricot Almond Stuffing

Vickie Parks


I spent years searching for a good stuffing recipe that could be served any day of the week (and didn't taste similar to the usual sage-flavored Thanksgiving stuffing). After trying several different recipes, I began to try new things and adjust ingredients that I thought would enhance the flavor. I eventually came up with this Apricot Almond Stuffing recipe. It's very tasty with a unique flavor all its own....perfect for any meal.

6 large
croissants, cut into bite-size pieces (buying day-old is ok and often saves money)
1 medium
onion, chopped finely
2/3 c
sliced almonds
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
3/4 c
dried apricots, quartered
1 tsp
orange zest
1/4 c
butter, melted
1 Tbsp
apricot preserves or apricot jam (peach preserves and peach jam do not work well in this recipe)
2 c
low-sodium chicken broth or water

How to Make Apricot Almond Stuffing


  • 1Preheat oven to 350°F. (I don't usually grease my Pyrex baking dish when making this recipe, and I've never had a problem with clean-up. But you might prefer to do so, depending on what type of baking dish you're using.)
  • 2Place torn croissant pieces, chopped onion, sliced almonds, tarragon, thyme, parsley, quartered apricot bits, and orange zest in a large mixing bowl.
  • 3In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, apricot preserves (or jam), and half of the chicken broth; stir until blended. Pour the broth mixture over the stuffing mixture. Use a large spatula or wooden spoon to toss the stuffing mixture until all the ingredients are well blended. Use as much of the remaining broth--adding a little at a time--as is needed to get the stuffing thoroughly moist (but not saturated or "soupy"). I usually use nearly all of the 2 cups of broth, with maybe 1/8 cup or so not used.
  • 4Place stuffing in a 10-inch square baking dish, cover, and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
