  • Author: Nicole Nared-Washington


Take your Stove Top® Stuffing to another level by adding some bacon and sweet and tart apples making this Apple Bacon Herb Stuffing.  



  • ½ pound OSCAR MAYER Naturally Hardwood Smoked Bacon, chopped
  • 2 small Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 2 boxes (6 ounces) STOVE TOP Turkey Stuffing Mix
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9″ x13″ casserole dish with nonstick spray.

2. In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook until slightly crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon and add to a plate lined with a paper towel.

3. Add the apples, onion, celery, garlic, and light brown sugar to the bacon fat and cook until softened, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat.

4. In a large pot, bring water, chicken stock, and butter to a boil on medium heat. Remove from heat. Add stuffing mix and seasoning packets; stir. Let sit for 2 minutes.

5. Stir in the apple-vegetable mixture, bacon, and sage. Mix to combine and pour into the prepared casserole dish. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
