Stuffing Muffins baked in a muffin tin for easy portion control! This classic stuffing recipe is made even more delicious with Pancetta (or bacon).

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 12 ounces whole wheat French bread (cut into small cubes (9 1/4 oz if dried))
  • 3 ounces diced pancetta
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 shallots (minced)
  • 3 large stalks celery (minced)
  • 2/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 10 fresh sage leaves (minced)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Bell's Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth

Instructions

  • Let bread sit overnight to harden. If your bread is fresh, preheat the oven and bake the bread cubes on 2 baking sheets at 250°F for about 30 minutes, stirring half way until the bread is completely firm.
  • Increase the oven to 375°F. Spray a non-stick muffin tin with oil.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the Pancetta until browned and the fat renders, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add butter; when melted add shallots, celery, parsley, sage, Bell’s seasoning and salt and cook on medium low until soft, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, combine chicken broth and egg.
  • In a large bowl add bread and combine with sauteed vegetables.
  • Add chicken broth and egg mixture and combine well. If stuffing is too dry, add a little more broth or water until you have the right consistency. Let is sit 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the stuffing to the muffin pan. (If making ahead cover with foil and refrigerate).
  • If making alongside a turkey, pour some of the pan juices from the cooked turkey over the stuffing. Bake uncovered 25 minutes, or until golden.
