  • 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.

It was a little dry. I added additional broth which helped. Not sure if I'm going to make it again. Read More

Taste was great! The muffins had 1 good bite each. The rest was dry. I added the bacon drippings after the eggs. It was my first attempt at any stuffing. Read More

My husband liked this dressing a lot and ate half of it himself. I did not put into the muffin pan, instead placed it in a baking dish. It turned out really well. Will make again in the future. Read More

I made this yesterday and I must say it was delicious. I used green onions instead of regular onions and it was good as well. however I used store bought stuffing. don't know if making my own stuffing will make a difference. maybe next time. Read More

My raw mixed product (before baking) was very dry so I added an ingredient not in the original recipe: broth. That helped considerably but it's occurred to me that some imprecision in the recipe also might have contributed to the problem. The need for "two loaves of bread" needs more precise quantification. I used two bags of dry (some might say "stale") Arnold breadcrumbs which simply may have been too much volume or too arid an ingredient. I'd welcome any amplification how to improve directions for this recipe. Read More
