Golden Raisin Apple Stuffing Cups

Golden Raisin Apple Stuffing Cups

 It's a side dish that contains itself. Kids can scoop out the insides or hold it with two hands. Most importantly, they'll love it!


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth (turkey broth if you have it)
  • About 1 1/2 cups golden raisins (1 box)
  • 6 cups homemade or store bought cube stuffing
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 9″ pie crusts – homemade or store-bought


  1. Add oil to large saucepan and saute the red onion and celery. After about 3-4 minutes, add the chopped apples and broth. Let cook another 4-5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the golden raisins and bread cubes. Toss the cooked apples, celery, onions and broth with the raisins and bread cubes, until all the bread cubes have soaked up the liquid.
  3. Cut the pie crust into large circles…large enough to fill the better part of a regular size muffin tin. Press them into a greased muffin tin. Scoop the stuffing into the crust and press down firmly.
  4. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until stuffing begins to golden on top.
  5. Enjoy!

Buttered noodles. Hands down. I have one child who willingly tries everything, and one who is skeptical of the taste of everything. But noodles are something that they can customize to their own tastes.
