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.
