Ready Time: 45 minutes
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
1/2 bunch sage leaves, stems picked off and leaves left whole
1/2 bunch kale, torn into large pieces
1/3 cup hazelnuts, roughly crushed
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 loaf sourdough bread, cut or torn into chunks
1/2 cup chicken stock
Black pepper to taste
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).
