finished Bacon Apple StuffingI came up with this recipe for homemade stuffing when I was recently having a turkey, apple, and bacon sandwich. I loved the combination so much, I thought a stuffing version of it would be a great addition for the holidays to have alongside turkey. I usually use packaged stuffing mix and throw in extras, but this will now be my go-to method from scratch. The textures will blow you away. I can't get enough of it!

Thanks, Joan! It's pretty stellar. It keeps well in the fridge and reheated, too. I like to toast mine in the broiler!
