Stuffing muffins are my fun take on the classic holiday recipe! These individual cups are packed with traditional stuffing, veggies, and bacon.
Thanksgiving stuffing has always been my favorite holiday side dish! Growing up, it wasn't uncommon for our Thanksgiving table to have 2 or 3 different types of stuffing or dressing.
I typically load my plate up with plenty of stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, and butternut squash macaroni and cheese!
These stuffing muffins are great to prep ahead! Alternatively, you could make these using bits of leftover dishes. Looking for other Thanksgiving leftover ideas? Check out my poutine and pizza!
How to Make Stuffing Muffins
This simple recipe comes together with cubed bread, bacon, onion, celery, broth, and seasoning.
Step 1: In a large skillet, cook bacon on the stove top. I like to chop the bacon up into small pieces! As the bacon begins to cook, add onion and celery, and let cook until soft.
Step 2: Stir in dried sage, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add stuffing cubes then gradually stir in broth.
Step 3: Divide the stuffing mixture equally in a muffin tin then bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes. Enjoy stuffin muffins on their own or smothered in gravy!
Stuffing muffins are incredibly versatile, so use your favorite add-ins to make this dish your own.
- Cubed bread: Use dry bread that's a day or two old. French bread and sourdough are common for stuffing, but any dry bread will work!
- Bacon: The bacon gives these muffins a nice crispy texture and perfectly salty taste. Feel free to omit or use pancetta instead.
- Vegetables: I kept it simple with just chopped yellow onion and celery stalks, but carrots and other seasonal veggies would be great in here as well.
This recipe is dairy free and egg free, as is. As someone with dietary restrictions due to food allergies and intolerances, I understand how stressful the holidays can be. These muffins are easy to adapt!
- To make gluten-free: Use gluten-free bread!
- To make vegan / vegetarian: Leave the meat out.
