Kielbasa Dressing with Apples, Raisins & Walnuts
Smoky kielbasa, sweet-tart Granny Smith apples, and fruity cider unite for a new dressing that's sure to become a family-favorite recipe.
Preheat oven to 300°. Coat a 3-qt. baking dish with nonstick spray.
Stale bread on a baking sheet in oven until dry, 30 minutes. Remove bread and increase oven temperature to 375°.
Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook kielbasa, in two batches, until brown, 3–4 minutes per side; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
Sweat onions and celery in drippings over medium heat, covered, until softened, 3 minutes. Add apples and sweat, covered, 2 minutes more.
Whisk together cider and mustard and toss with bread, kielbasa, onion mixture, raisins, walnuts, parsley, sage, salt, and pepper in a bowl; transfer to prepared dish. Bake dressing until bread is crisp around edges, 30–35 minutes.
Brown kielbasa until caramelized around the edges so the flavor stands out in the dressing.
