Almond-Bacon Bread Stuffing

Amy H.


This stuffing is my absolute favorite thing about the holidays!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A fantastic stuffing recipe! It has all the flavors you expect in a holiday stuffing but it's made even better. Adding bacon and toasted almonds adds so much flavor. Cooking onions and celery in the bacon grease give them a smoky flavor. Serve alongside your holiday meal for a delicious side dish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
