  • 1 apple
  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 2 cups turkey stock
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 12-ounce bag herb seasoned stuffing
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large electric skillet at medium heat, sauté the chopped bacon until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Add the onion, celery, carrots to the bacon grease and sauté until the vegetables are soft. Add the apples and bacon and mix well. Toss together gently the spices, stuffing and broth until the stuffing is moist. 
  • Transfer the stuffing to a 9 x 13 inch casserole pan that has been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray. Bake the stuffing for 30 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned.


The stuffing can be prepared one day ahead and kept in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
