cook veggies and herbs

melt butter in a large pan. Add the celery, onion, apples, sage and rosemary, and cook for 10-15 minutes, until softened. Remove from heat and allow to cool.



Beat together the eggs, then mix in the chicken stock and salt in the bottom of a large bowl. Toss the bread cubes and apple/celery mixture in the egg mixture. Scoop the apple stuffing into the casserole/baking dish.



cover with foil or a reusable silicone cover, and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool uncovered.


Refrigerate - cover and store in the fridge overnight.  Reheat and serve - when ready to serve, bake uncovered in the oven at 350°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour; until stuffing is crispy and golden on the top.
