I think most of us have staples that get prepared for every Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing, a casserole or two… Honestly, I think most traditional Thanksgiving food is pretty boring, which is why I decided to experiment with one of my favorite dishes – stuffing.

Every family has a stuffing recipe they swear by. Personally, I like to keep things simple by using a box stuffing mix and added in some extra veggies and flavors. For these Bacon Wrapped Stuffing Muffins, I decided to stick with the box stuffing mix to keep it even easier.

No need to make things complicated, especially on a day as busy as Thanksgiving. And then you can use whatever variety you choose: cornbread, savory herb (my favorite) or traditional. Using chicken or vegetable stock instead of water just infuses even more flavor so you don’t have to add any additional ingredient, herbs or spices.

However, as you can see, I still like to hide a few veggies in there.

Stuffing muffins take about 5 minutes longer to prepare than a traditional stuffing for Thanksgiving but I think when the end result is stuffing with bacon, those 5 minutes are worth it!

What I love about these stuffing muffins, besides that fact I get to eat stuffing with bacon, is that they’re already in individual serving sizes. They fit perfectly on a plate and look way nicer on the dinner table than a big bowl of stuffing.

I came up with these Bacon Wrapped Stuffing Muffins as a Thanksgiving dinner recipe but they make a great side dish for many other dinners too. Really, who needs a holiday as an excuse to eat stuffing with bacon?!

I love bacon. I love stuffing. Why the heck have I never wrapped stuffing in bacon before?!? this is brilliant and I seriously can’t wait to make this recipe!!!

Oh my goodness.. either bacon or stuffing on their own would be in my top favorite food groups, but combined!? irresistible! these would be so fun for the holiday!

What a fun idea and very practical too for individual servings. I imagine the bacon helps infuse a tasty flavor.

Love this idea for stuffing! First, everything is better with bacon 🙂 and second, this is a great way to use leftover stuffing, too.
