This stuffing is so good because the Cream of Celery soup adds a unique texture that will have people coming back for seconds. The Italian bread cubes soak up all the rich and creamy flavor of the soup making a crispy, crunchy top and a perfectly moist interior. The flavor of the celery soup paired with tangy apple and the bright taste of the fennel adds to what makes this Apple, Fennel & Herb Stuffing a taste and textural delight!
Heat the oven to 350°F. Arrange the bread cubes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until well toasted. While the bread cubes are baking, heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the fennel and onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the apple and cook for 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in the soup, broth, parsley, sage and thyme.
Arrange the toasted bread cubes in a lightly greased 3 quart baking dish. Pour the soup mixture over the bread and stir to combine.
Bake for 50 minutes or until hot and the top is golden brown and crisp.
