Apricot Almond Stuffing

I have been in search of a good stuffing recipe that could be served any day of the week but does not taste similar to the usual bread/sage Thanksgiving stuffing. After trying several different stuffing recipes, I began to adjust ingredients and to try several new ingredients that I thought would enhance the flavor. I eventually came up with this apricot almond stuffing. It's very tasty with a unique flavor all it's own....perfect for any day of the week, or for that special side dish when company is over, whether you're serving beef or pasta or poultry as the main course. And this is just such a tasty stuffing that I know it's just a matter of time before I eventually replace my traditional bread/sage stuffing at our annual Thanksgiving Dinner with this Apricot Almond Stuffing. (I don't want to invoke an impromptu riot within my family by venturing away from my family's traditional Thanksgiving menu, so I'll preserve family tradiition by offering Grandma's Homemade Stuffing every Thanksgiving for the sake of family peace...at least for the time being.) You can use this to stuff any bird, too. I prefer chicken, but I assume it would go well with turkey or even game hens as well. I hope you like it.
