- 3 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, cut into thin strips shopping list
- 12 cups dried whole wheat bread cubes shopping list

- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten shopping list
How to make it
- Cook bacon in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp and browned, about 12 minutes.
- Or, cook in microwave between sheets of paper toweling to absorb excess grease.
- If oven or pan fried, remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
- Discard all but 3 tablespoons rendered bacon fat.
- Increase heat to medium-high and add onions and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
- Cook onions until golden in color, making sure to stir occasionally and scrape sides and bottom of pan, about 20 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring more often to prevent burning, until onions are deep golden brown, another 5 minutes.
- Add apples and continue to cook another 5 minutes.
- Transfer contents of pan to large bowl.
- Add remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, parsley, and sage to bowl and mix to combine.
- Add bread cubes.
- Whisk stock and eggs together in small bowl.
- Pour mixture over bread cubes.
- Gently toss to evenly distribute ingredients.
- Use as a stuffing or spoon into a greased baking dish.
- (If baking in a dish and moister stuffing is desired, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more stock or broth to stuffing before spooning stuffing into dish.)
- Bake at 350°F until the top has formed a crust and the stuffing is heated through, about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot.
