Hyvee Culinary Expert TipTo dry bread for use the same day, preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cut bread into cubes and spread on a rimmed baking pan. Place bread in oven and bake 30 minutes, or until dry and toasted.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat an 8x8x2-inch baking dish with coking spray; set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray and add carrot. Cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add mushrooms, onions, celery, and, if desired, chestnuts to skillet and cook, stirring often, until onions begin to soften. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add Dried Bread Cubes, dried cranberries, and sage. Pour in broth and egg; toss to combine. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes to absorb broth. If needed, add more broth 1/4 cup at a time, until bread is thoroughly moistened. Stir in apple and season with salt and pepper.
Transfer mixture to baking dish; lightly coat top with cooking spray and bake 30 minutes, uncovered, or until top has browned and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
