Golden Raisin-Apple Stuffing Cups – Healthy Holiday Recipe

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 15, 2010

My mom used to make this Golden Raisin-Apple Stuffing. And I could never get enough of it!  Still can’t…I’m making it again this yet, but in a new way.

Stuffing Cups.

I have a feeling these will soon be the latest rage!

Golden Raisin-Apple Stuffing Cups


  • 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 (coupon here)


  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!

I LOVE the idea of these. The little individual portions are so cute and I’ve never had raisin-apple stuffing so it would be really fun to try!

Wow-I have stumbled across your site and I love your ideas! My mouth is watering and I can’t wait to start making some of these recipes (they all look so delicious) :) I am a french teacher, with 2 kids (15 months apart) and one in the making. My husband is a stay at home dad. With such a busy household, and being on a strict budget, I am always looking for HEALTHY, and inexpensive, as well as tasty meals to make for my family. Your meals look as though they accomplish these three things for me….I will keep you posted on my experiences with your recipes. Thanks for the great website. :)
