ours is very similar. we start with those ingredients, but then brown and crumble some italian style sweet turkey sausage, add chopped mushrooms, moisten with chicken or turkey stock, and dot the top of the mixture ina baking dish with a generous amount of butter. it's baked at 350 until the top gets crunchy, the apples, shrooms, and veggies are soft and the liquid is fully absorbed.
this is what we make for thanksgiving as a side dish, and then i've used leftovers to stuff things like pork chops or veal breast.
subtract the sausage and add some shrimp or crabmeat, and it's great for stuffing flounder, crabs, lobster, or making baked clams.
