Haven't made this recipe but it sounds a lot like the one I make. Instead of the cream of chicken soup - I use cream of mushroom soup. Instead of the bread cubes I buy a packaged unseasoned stuffing mix and use the seasoning packet sparingly (I believe the spices are similar to yours). Also for the meat portion I use Hawaiian Portuguese Sausage and add golden raisins. Instead of the applesauce I dice Fuji apples. A retired firefighter gave me this recipe a long time ago - I have never made any other stuffing and am always asked to make more!
We found this stuffing to be wonderful not overwhelming bacon favored at all as stated before. My only suggestion is use low-fat meats and trim the fat from the bacon to ensure that is not greasy. I used this to make stuffed porkchops and we really loved the flavor it added to the pork chops.
I am not a stuffing fan but when I found this recipe I thought it was worth a shot. I along with my entire family LOVE this stuffing. It is so full of flavor. It could be a meal in itself. My kids even like this. HINT: I used a 14 oz bag of dry bread cubes once with plain and once with seasoned and BOTH were great.
This was an excellent stuffing recipe. I feel quilty only giving 4 stars but I'm just not a huge stuffing fan. I chose this because my family loves mushrooms. For stuffing it couldn't be any better. I used straight sausage about 3/4 pounds because that's what I had leftover from another recipe. I skipped the apples and applesauce all together I don't like fruits with veggies in a recipe. I didn't quite dump in the entire pound of dry bread cause I was afraid of dry stuffing. It turned out great. I will use this recipe again!
We served this for a special dinner and it was a big hit! Everyone commented on the great flavor! I made it pretty much exactly as specified (but I don't really measure) and we really enjoyed it. We'll be making this again!
This was the first time I have used this recipe and it was a HUGE hit. Not one ounce was left over (Ill make more next time!). Next time I am going to add one more (Granny Smith) apple as I loved the texture and the sour kick it added to the sweetness of the meats!
