Fig and Almond Bread Stuffing

Perfect for both in the bird stuffing, but also makes a good crispy single serving stuffing made in muffin tins.


  • Prep Time : 30 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour min
  • Ready Time : 31 min


12 s


  • 2-12 ounce loaf pullman bread cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 5 ounces sliced almonds (1 1/2 cups)
  • 12 ounces dried Black mission figs (2 cups), stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbsps. Chopped sage
  • 2 Tbsps. Chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 6 Tbsps. Unsalted butter or parve margarine
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, cored and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. Fennel seed finely chopped
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock or parve boullion stock
  • Salt and pepper



1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the bread on a large baking sheet and toast for about 15 minutes, stirring once, until slightly dry. Spread the almonds on another baking sheet and toast for 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Let almonds cool, then lightly crush them.
2 Transfer bread, almonds, figs, sage and parsley to a large bowl.
3 In a large skillet, melt the 6 Tbsps of butter/margarine. Add the onion, celery, carrots, chopped fennel, garlic and fennel seed and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
4 Let them cool, then scrape the vegetables into the bread mixture in the bowl. Stir in the eggs and stock and season with salt and pepper.
5 Stuff Turkey with the mixture. Fill greased muffin tins with the leftover mixture. Bake for 30 minutes uncovered until top is browned and crispy.

I am the mother of two and I work full-time. When I have the time I like to cook, but I have to balance being a vegetarian with my husband's love for meat. I am told I make a mean london broil.

    Andrea, if the recipe comes from you I know it’ll be great. The question is, what is pullman bread?

  2. Have to remember this combo next Thanksgiving.

  3. I love figs, would love to try this recipe.
