Apple Nut Stuffing
½ cup butter
3 large celery stalks, finely chopped
1 medium white or yellow onion, chopped

12 oz. dried cubed stuffing
2 Tbsp. toasted sunflower seeds
½ cup chopped pecans
1 (14.5 oz.) can chicken broth
1 tsp. The Spice Hunter Poultry Seasoning Blend
¼ tsp. The Spice Hunter Coarse Black Pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery and onion; stir occasionally and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Add apples and cook 5 minutes longer.
3. In large bowl, combine celery mixture with cubed stuffing and remaining ingredients; toss to mix well.
