Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients

12 ounce package sliced bacon, chopped or diced

2 cups diced, fresh celery

1 cup diced, fresh onion

1 1/2 cups orange juice or Champagne

1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)

3 1/2 ounce package Sunsweet™ Dried Blueberries

1/2 box (6 oz.) of Mrs. Cubbison's Traditional Seasoned Stuffing

2 fresh, well beaten eggs

Directions

  • In a large nonstick pan or pot over medium heat, brown bacon, celery and onion until the bacon is just under crispy. Add orange juice or champagne and bring to a low boil, stirring frequently. Turn off burner. Add maple syrup (optional), blueberries and seasoned dressing; stir until well combined. Allow to reach room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare muffin pan with Canola cooking oil spray at the bottoms of each cup.
  • Fold beaten eggs into cooled meat, vegetable and dressing mix. Spoon into prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake on middle rack of preheated 375°F for 20 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165°F and lightly browned on top of Stuffins. Remove from oven, cool slightly, remove from muffin pan and cool.

Tips:

These Stuffins can be frozen then microwaved for one minute on high as a quick, holiday breakfast treat.


This can also be a traditional casserole stuffing recipe:
Eliminate the eggs, transfer the warm meat, vegetable and dressing mix into a prepared 9" X 11" pan, bake on middle rack of preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove from oven and serve as Bacon-Blueberry Stuffing with turkey.
