Cornbread Stuffing with Bacon!

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


Stuffing/filling/dressing -- whatever you call it, it sure is delish. I absolutely despised the stuff when I was young, & now it's one of my favorite items to make. I make up a lot of different types. This is what I made today with roast chicken & it is sooooo yummy!!!
As usual, I didn't measure anything, so please use your judgment if you make.

How to Make Cornbread Stuffing with Bacon!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in Dutch oven or large pan. Add about 1 TBS of bacon fat (if you wish) for added flavor. Sautee the onions, celery, & red pepper until soft with some salt.
  2. Add poultry seasoning (about 1 tsp), chicken bouillon cube, and dissolve. Crumble up the muffins & add them to the pan. Stir gently. Add chicken broth & some more butter, if you want. :)
  3. Crumble up the bacon & stir into the stuffing. Remove from heat & stir in 2 beaten eggs. Mix well, add some curly parsley & stir.
  4. Pour in a greased baking dish, & add a little bit more chicken broth (maybe another 1/4 cup) & bake for about 40 minutes on 350. You may want to add some butter on top to brown nicely.
