Our Dr. Joey Shulman shared her healthy and delicious stuffing recipe! Here’s what she had to say about it: This whole grain stuffing is a definite crowd-pleaser that also offers omega-3s, fiber, minerals and vitamins.

Harvest turkey stuffing


  • 2 loaves of whole grain bread
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 3 apples, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 eggs


Separate slices of bread and spread them out on the racks in your oven.  Set at 250 degrees and allow to bake for 40 minutes.  Remove from oven, allow to cool and cut into 1-1 ½” cubes.

Peel and dice onions and apples. Wash and dice celery.

Combine diced apples, onions, celery with walnuts, cranberries and diced whole grain bread. Add in sage, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Mix thoroughly.

Crack eggs into a separate bowl. Beat until even.

Pour the mixture over the bread mixture and mix thoroughly. Test the mixture for moisture. The mixture should hold together when a handful is squeezed. If it appears too dry, slowly add more water and continue to mix until the right consistency is achieved.

Stuff turkey. If you have excess stuffing, it can be wrapped in aluminum foil and baked in the oven for 40 minutes.

Remove stuffing from turkey and allow to cool for 10 minutes prior to serving.
