Preheat oven to 350°; coat inside of a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or nonstick spray.

Fry bacon in a large sauté pan over medium until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate; pour off drippings.

Whisk together broth, milk, eggs, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add bread; let stand 15 minutes, tossing occasionally.

In the same pan used to fry the bacon, sauté celery and onion with butter over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add apples, parsley, and sage; sauté 1 minute more.

Add bacon and sautéed mixture to bread; toss to combine. Transfer stuffing to the prepared dish; bake until set and browned on top, about 1 hour.


The bread will soak up nearly all the liquid. If bread cubes remain dry in the center, soak another 5 minutes.


Baking apples are best for this recipe. They retain much of their shape and texture after cooking.
