Bacon Apple Stuffing

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, laughter and booze.

It’s more probable that you had a Thanksgiving full of awkward family interchanges, too much eating, and due to the first possibility, too much drinking.

And that’s cool too.  It wouldn’t be family if it wasn’t just a little awkward.  I am pretty sure family means awkward in latin.  I know, Rhodes Scholar up in here. Regardless, the one thing we can be sure of after Thanksgiving is left over stuffing.  Because we all act like we will never eat stuffing again and we have to make a quadruple batch and oh no, what if we run out?

And I have a leftover stuffing recipe for you so great, you’ll find other times in the year to pull out the old poultry seasoning. (right?!?!? buy a huge jar, use it once a year. sigh.)

See, you sear up some bacon, then throw left over roast vegetables in the bacon fat.  Then you toss said bacon, and bacon fat vegetables together -and combine all that with your left over stuffing.  Hollow out some apples, stuff those puppies, bake them off, and laugh at how much better the Sunday after Thanksgiving is than the actual Thanksgiving itself.  Your house is clean, your guests are gone, and all that stands between you and these stuffed apples are your stretchy pants.  AMEN.

Do you need some stuffing recipes, just in case you ate all your Thanksgiving leftovers already? Ok, fine.

Bacon Apple Stuffing



Sear the bacon in a skillet, remove and drain on a paper towel.  In the bacon fat in the same skillet, toss the leftover roast vegetables.  Combine with the left over stuffing in a big bowl, and stir to incorporate, being careful not to break the bread up too much.  Core and hollow out some apples.  Stuff with the leftovers mixture, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the stuffing is warmed through.
