What a wonderful switch from our standard stuffing!!! Loved the added bacon flavor, but I always think that bacon makes everything better, lol!!! I made 1/4 of the recipe and served it with roasted chicken thighs, mashed taters/gravy and corn, yummy!!! I didn't have the fresh herbs so did sub dried, but otherwise, made as written. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up the loaves into small cubes and lay out on a large baking sheet for at least 3 hours (or overnight) so the bread can dry out.
  2. Cook the bacon and cut into small bite size pieces.
  3. Cut the apples, onion, and celery into small bite size pieces (everything is bite size!).
  4. Mince the garlic.
  5. Cook all of that in the bacon fat and bourbon until it just begins to soften. Sprinkle on a little salt + pepper.
  6. In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked veggies, bacon and bread cubes.
  7. Stir in the stock and eggs. Stir in the chopped herbs.
  8. Dump everything into a buttered baking dish. Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes.
