Country Apple and Vegetable Stuffing

This is a great everyday stuffing that goes well with pork, turkey, or roast chicken.  It gets a big hit of flavor from the sautéed veggies and Granny Smith apple mixed in with the bread cubes.  It also makes the perfect amount for a weeknight meal and can be prepped the day before and baked off with the main entree.

Country Apple and Vegetable Stuffing
7 slices white bread, cubed
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 small onion, diced
1 Granny Smith apple, diced
1 egg
1 cup chicken broth
1 T butter
1 T olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. fresh thyme

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread cubed bread on a sheet pan and bake until lightly brown.  Remove from oven and let cool.  In a saute pan heat butter and olive oil and then add onion, celery, carrot, and apple.  Season with salt and pepper.   Saute for 8-10 minutes over medium heat or until vegetables soften and apple breaks down.  Add thyme and poultry seasoning.  Mix thoroughly and remove from heat.  In a bowl combine bread cubes and vegetable mixture.  In another small bowl whisk together the egg and chicken broth and then pour oven bread cubes.  Mix to combine.  Pour into prepared baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
