Bacon Stuffing Bites by Maggie

Maggie ^O^


Mom used to make these little gems after our Thanksgiving dinner as a way to use up the extra stuffing. She would put oysters in the center and drizzle them with soy sauce when ate them.

We don't care much for the oyster center so we changed it up to have whole water chestnuts in them for a nice crunch. We use the canned water chestnuts because it's easier to find and easier to do .. just drain and dry before using.

They make a great appetizer and they aren't hard to do .. we hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

How to Make Bacon Stuffing Bites by Maggie


  1. Preheat oven to 425.
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cook your bacon until the fat begins to render.

    Do not cook it crisp because you will need to wrap the bacon around the stuffing ball.
  3. Dry the water chestnuts and lay on paper towel.
  4. Scoop out 2 tablespoons of stuffing and form into a round ball.

    Press a water chestnut into the center of the stuffing then surround it with stuffing and close it up.
  5. Lay the strips of bacon out and sprinkle with pepper.

    Take a strip of bacon and wrap it - pepper side in - around the stuffing ball.

    Secure with a toothpick and place on the baking sheet.

    Repeat all steps until the stuffing is gone.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy.
    Drain on paper towels before serving.
  7. These are delicious on their own but are extra yummy if you sprinkle a bit of Tamari sauce on them or dip them into BBQ or sweet and sour sauce.
  8. NOTE: I don't list an amount of stuffing or bacon or chestnuts because you can simply use up leftovers with this recipe.
