Bacon & Cheese Stuffing Bites

I vote for making this in the first place!

Why is it that people only make stuffing during the holidays (including me!)?  To me, it’s the best part of a holiday meal. Here is a way to use up some of the leftover stuffing, though I vote for making this in the first place!

Bacon & Cheese Stuffing Bites

Makes 20

3 slices of bacon
2½ cups leftover cooked bread stuffing
½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 cup green onions, minced
Milk or broth, optional

Pre-heat the oven to 350˚. Lightly grease a mini muffin pan.

Cut the bacon into ½” pieces. You need 20 pieces. Discard any pieces that are all or mostly fat.

Place the stuffing in a bowl and break it up with a fork. Add the cheese and scallions. Mix well. If the mixture is too dry, moisten it with a little milk or broth.

Press a heaping tablespoon of the stuffing mixture into the muffin cups and press down. Top each with a piece of bacon. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked.
