Apple, Fennel & Herb Stuffing

Apple, Fennel & Herb Stuffing

Total Time: 1 Hour

Serves: 10

Prep Time: 15 Minutes



  • 1 loaf (about 16 ounces) Italian bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 10 cups)

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup chopped fennel bulb (about 4 ounces)

  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 2 cans (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Celery Soup

  • 1 cup Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 teaspoons thinly sliced fresh sage leaves

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves


  1. 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.

  2. Arrange the toasted bread cubes in a lightly greased 3-quart baking dish. Pour the soup mixture over the bread and stir to combine.

  3. Bake for 50 minutes or until hot and the top is golden brown and crisp.



  • Look for Italian loaves of bread that have a crusty exterior but with a soft and airy interior. Varieties such as ciabatta and pane Toscano lend themselves well to this stuffing. 

  • This recipe will work in a variety of baking dishes, such as a 13x9x2-inch dish or a round or oval-shaped 3-quart casserole dish.
