Stuffing is one of those traditional Thanksgiving dishes that just never seems to get its proper due, so let’s fix that once and for all with this Impossible™ Burger, Apple & Sage Stuffing. Our savory recipe combines Impossible™ meat made from plants with classic savory stuffing flavors and the subtle sweetness of raisins and apples, creating an explosion of comforting fall flavors that are absolutely perfect for the holiday.

Stale bread is best for making stuffing, so you’ll want to plan ahead. Cut up the amount of bread you need into cubes, then let them sit out for a day or two to dry them out. If you’re reading this recipe the day of, don’t panic! Simply place your fresh bread cubes on a baking sheet and place them in your oven at 350°F, just until they’re dry and very lightly toasted.

You’ll start off by mixing the dry ingredients and spices in a bowl with the Impossible Burger, then browning it all in a pan. After you’ve added the other stuffing ingredients and cooked them through, pour over the bread cubes in a large bowl and mix it all up. When that’s cooled off, beat your eggs, stir them in, and then pour the stuffing mixture into your greased baking dish.

These next few steps are perfect if you’ve got other cooking tasks to attend to over the next hour: Cover the dish with foil and let it sit for 15 minutes while you heat the oven to 400°F. When ready, place the dish in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, remove the foil, and bake for about 20 more minutes, ensuring the top is nice and crisp. And just like that, an easy, show-stopping stuffing that’s definitely going to get the attention it deserves. Enjoy!
