Pear, Prosciutto & Hazelnut Stuffing

Crisping the prosciutto and toasting the nuts adds a powerful punch of flavor to the stuffing without going overboard on fat. Diamond Brand now makes packaged chopped hazelnuts, available in most major supermarkets.

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced, cut into ribbons
  • 2 cups onion, chopped
  • 2 cups diced fennel bulb
  • 1/4 cup minced shallot
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 8 cups stale baguette, preferably multi-grain (not sourdough), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 Bosc pears, ripe but firm, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/3 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • 1 14-ounce c reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Step 2

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto; cook, stirring, until crispy, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel.

Step 3

Wipe out the pan and heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, fennel and shallot and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add sage, thyme and rosemary and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Transfer everything to a large bowl and gently stir in bread, pears, parsley, hazelnuts and the prosciutto. Add broth; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the stuffing into the prepared baking dish; cover with foil.

Step 4

Bake for 40 minutes; remove the foil and bake until the top is beginning to crisp, 25 to 30 minutes more.
