1/4 cup butter

1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 large apple, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Melt butter over medium-low heat in a large skillet. Add onion, bacon and salt and cook for about 8 minutes or until the onion is soft and the bacon is cooked through. Add apple chunks, sage, kale and hazelnuts and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in apple cider vinegar and remove from heat.

Put bread chunks in a large bowl and stir in onion mixture. Spoon stuffing into a baking dish and pour stock over it. Bake until the top is browned (about 20 minutes).
