    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°.
    2. 2
      Place the bacon strips in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet; bake in the upper third of the oven until crisp and browned, 10-15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Some strips of bacon will cook more quickly than others, so remove them as they crisp and drain on paper towels.
    4. 4
      Crumble when cool.
    5. 5
      As the bacon fat renders and accumulates in the baking sheet, pour it off into a small heatproof bowl; reserve ¼ cup.
    6. 6
      Place potatoes in a big pot and add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches; bring to a boil, then add salt to taste; cook until the potatoes are barely tender when pierced with a knife, 15-20 minutes.
    7. 7
      Drain, rinse under cold water, and cool until easy to handle; cut into 1-inch cubes.
    8. 8
      In a big skillet, heat the reserved bacon fat or the oil over medium heat.
    9. 9
      Add in the celery; cook/stir often, until softened, about 5 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add the scallions and caraway seed; cook/stir occasionally, until the celery is beginning to brown, about 5 more minutes.
    11. 11
      Scrape the celery mixture into a big bowl; add in the bread cubes, cubed potatoes, and crumbled bacon; toss to mix.
    12. 12
      Gradually stir in about 1 cup broth until the stuffing is evenly moistened but not soggy.
    13. 13
      Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    14. 14
      Transfer mixture to a lightly buttered casserole dish, drizzle with ½ cup broth, cover, and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 30 minutes.

      I can't award stars, because I had to change the recipe too dramatically. Subbed onions for scallions, and increased the amount to 1-1/2 cups chopped onion. Also added garlic, thyme, rosemary, and sage. With the added onions and herbs, this was very tasty.
