  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Mix onion-bacon mixture and bread pieces together in a large bowl; fold in eggs. Spoon bread mixture into muffin cups.
  5. 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.

Used stove top stuffing with bacon and made in muffin tins. Made ahead and warmed up just before serving.

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

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.

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 re...

Two loaves made way too much bread, all the rest was great, definently used the turkey drippings for moisture.

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 s...
