Stuffing is a yummy staple at every Thanksgiving dinner. Whether stuffed into the turkey, or served on the side, these stale bread crumbs bring us together on Turkey Day. However, stuffing becomes a non-friendly side when served out of a turkey or when bought from StoveTop.

Look closely, and you'll see that most StoveTop stuffings are made with chicken broth, which is no good for vegetarians or vegans. Because my sister is a vegetarian; my mom and I created this apple stuffing recipe that not only my sister could eat, but also my entire family could enjoy. Try out this recipe for a new twist on this Thanksgiving Day classic.
