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.

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
