Easy Pepperidge Farm Stuffing with Apples and Celery

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 portions 1x


Don’t boo-hoo a pre-packaged stuffing on Thanksgiving. You can easily elevate this mix to make it your own. Plus, it’s a real time-saver and incredibly tasty!


Units Scale
  • 2 12-ounce packages Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Classic Stuffing
  • 2 cups diced onion, divided
  • 2 cups diced celery, divided
  • 4 cups chicken broth, divided in half
  • 2 cups diced apple, divided
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 additional tablespoons of butter for topping, divided (optional)
  • 1 cup of turkey juices for topping, divided (optional)

NOTE: This recipe is for TWO batches of stuffing to feed 8-10 people. I cooked them separately so divided all my ingredients into two piles while prepping.


  1. Be sure to watch the video for all the step-by-step instructions. 
  2. Dice the celery by cutting the celery stalks into thin strips and dicing into small pieces. I found that 10 total stalks were needed. Five for each cup. 
  3. Dice your onion into small pieces like the celery. I had one giant onion and got 2 cups out of it. 
  4. Peel the apples then cut apples into small cubes. I started by cutting four large chunks to get the apple from the core. Then slice the chunks into thicker strips and cut into cubes from there. My video show this well. 
  5. You’ll need two pans for this – one for each batch. Put butter in both pans and set heat to low-to-medium. When the butter melts add the celery to both pans. Cook for a couple of minutes. 
  6. Add the diced onion and apple to both pans and stir to combine. Cook for a couple of minutes while stirring. 
  7. Add chicken broth to both pans and bring to a boil. 
  8. Add one bag of Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Classic Stuffing to each pan and mix until well combined. All the stuffing mix should be drenched in the broth. 
  9. Transfer to 2 baking dishes. Remove 1 cup of the juices from your turkey pan and pour ½ cup on top of the stuffing in each baking dish.
  10.  If you are using the additional butter, slice it into thin pats of butter and distribute on top of the stuffing. 
  11. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. If you want to crisp the top a little you can put under broiler that last couple of minutes. Keep your eye on it so it doesn’t burn because that would totally suck.
