This Cornbread Stuffing Recipe with apples and pecans is so delicious. You can leave the apples and pecans out of course, but I think they kick this stuffing recipe up a notch.
This post is sponsored by Walmart to promote their new Online Shopping Service!
This recipe is actually adapted from what we call Grandmommy’s Dressing in our family. My Grandmommy always made the stuffing for our Thanksgiving meals, but we always called it dressing. The apples and pecans make it so decadent…it’s sure to become a family favorite!
I teamed up with WalMart to share this recipe with you and tell you about an amazing new service they are offering…ONLINE GROCERY SHOPPING! I cannot tell you how excited I am that WalMart is offering this service now. I literally ordered my groceries online and picked them up without even getting out of my car! There are so many reasons why this makes me happy. One, no impulse buying while I am in the store…somehow I always end up with a bunch of stuff that I don’t need when in store shopping. Two, no standing in line to check out…from home to store and back it only took me 20 minutes. Three, no hauling bags and cart to my car…lazy maybe, but I love it! Four, no getting kids out of the car and having them beg for everything in the store throughout the shopping trip…y’all feel me, right? Five, it’s FREE…as in there is no additional charge for the online service! It’s easy, it’s fast and it saves you money…what’s better than that?
A little more on my grocery shopping experience later…let’s get to my delicious stuffing recipe, shall we?
- 1 14oz. bag of Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing Mix
- 1 14oz. bag of Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Stuffing Mix
- 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
- 4 ribs of celery, diced
- 1 large apple, peeled and diced
- 1/3 cup pecans, chopped finely
- 1 stick of melted, lightly salted butter
- 4 cups of chicken stock or broth
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large pot, melt butter and cook onions, celery, apple, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper until softened. Next, add stuffing mix, pecans and chicken stock. Stir until the stuffing mix is coated with stock and the vegetables and apple are mixed throughout. Spray a 9X13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add stuffing mix to the casserole dish. Cover with foil and cook covered for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Now…let’s chat about how the online grocery shopping works!
You start by going to Walmart’s Online Shopping Website HERE! You will be asked to enter your zip code. This allows Walmart to find locations near you that offer the online shopping service. If this service is not available in your area, it probably will be soon!
Next, it’s time to grocery shop! You can type in what you are looking for and different options for purchasing will come up. You can be brand specific like I was here, or you can be very general and get lots of options! It was so great to just go down my menu and grocery list and pick the ingredients I needed. It was much easier than I anticipated and I was able to avoid grabbing extra items that I didn’t need.
To finish ordering, you simply checkout with your preferred method of payment, chose a pickup time and check out…no lines! Once you have checked out, you will receive a confirmation with your pickup time, where to pickup and your order details. You also have the option to change your pickup time if needed up until a time which will be listed at the top of your order confirmation…I just love how flexible this service is! So, I did my online shopping on Tuesday with a scheduled pickup time of Wednesday between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm. Here’s what happened next…
On Wednesday, I received a call from my Walmart at 11:05 am. They informed me that my order was ready for pickup and asked if I could give them a call when I was 10 minutes away. Since I live less than 10 minutes away, I told them that I was leaving home now and would be there within 10 minutes. They once again told me where to pickup and that they were looking forward to seeing me. They didn’t know that Walmart was sending me, and I loved that they were super friendly any way…you don’t get that much these days. I drove to my Walmart and they had the Online Pickup Spot clearly marked with several signs. I pulled into one of the pickup spots and waited.
Only 3 minutes later, a delightful clerk named Ashleigh brought my groceries out and confirmed my order. She loaded my groceries into the back of my car, and since it was my first online order with Walmart, she gave me a freebie bag filled with samples and grocery items for me and my family to try…how nice is that?
She also excitedly explained that they have a Refer a Friend program where I can receive $10 off of my next order as well as up to 10 of my friends. You guys, that means I can save up to $100…whoop! They make it super easy to share with your friends, so you can share the wealth and spread the word about this amazing offer!
