What You Need

9
cups  bread cubes (12 slices bread)
 Nonstick cooking spray
9
slices  bacon
2
tablespoons  butter
1-1/2
cups  coarsely chopped red onions
3
stalks  celery, chopped
1
 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1
 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
2
large  Granny Smith or fuji apples, peeled (if desired), cored, and coarsely chopped (about 3 cups)
1
 tablespoon minced garlic (6 cloves)
1/4
 teaspoon ground black pepper
1
cup  chicken broth
Small  fresh sage leaves (optional)

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spread bread cubes in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice; cool. (Cubes will continue to dry and crisp as they cool.) Or let bread cubes stand, loosely covered, at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside.

3. In an extra large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels; crumble bacon. Drain fat, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet.

4. Add butter to skillet. Add onions, celery, and herbs; cook over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add apples and garlic; cook and stir for 2 to 4 minutes or until apple is just softened. Transfer to an extra large bowl.

5. Add bread cubes, crumbled bacon, and pepper to vegetable mixture; toss gently to combine. Add broth and toss until moistened.

6. Spoon about 2/3 cup stuffing into each prepared muffin cup; press to pack tightly. If desired, top each cup with a fresh sage leaf. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until stuffing is hot and tops are light brown. Cool about 10 minutes. Carefully remove from pans; serve warm. Makes 12 servings.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Advance preparation
Prepare stuffing as above. Remove from muffin cups and transfer to large covered container; cover and chill up to 24 hours. To reheat, transfer stuffing servings to a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; cover with foil. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.
