Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat until cooked through but still slightly soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels, retaining bacon drippings in the skillet.

  • Melt butter in a separate skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion and celery until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir bacon and poultry seasoning into onion mixture.

  • Mix onion-bacon mixture and bread pieces together in a large bowl; fold in eggs. Spoon bread mixture into muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are crispy, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe can be lightened up by using turkey bacon, chicken stock, and whole wheat bread. But if you are making it for Thanksgiving, I say just go for it!

If you think the stuffing is too dry after adding the eggs, you can add bacon drippings (or milk or chicken stock) until you get the right consistency.
