Ingredients

  • Twelve 4" cream biscuits cut into 1 1/2" cubes
  • 1 pound sliced bacon cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 yellow onions diced
  • 5 celery stalks diced
  • 8 ounces tart apples sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 cups chicken stock

Instructions

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread biscuits out on baking sheet. Toast until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. Set aside. Increase oven temperature to 375 degrees.
  3. In a deep sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisy, 7-9 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 3 Tablespoons of the fat. Over medium heat, cook the onions until translucent. Add the celery, apples, parsley, sage, and thyme, cooking until the celery and apples are soft (about 5 minutes).
  4. Transfer onion mixture to a large bowl. Add bacon to bowl, season with salt and pepper. Add biscuits and 3 cups of the chicken stock, stirring to combine. If the mixture looks too dry, add the last cup of chicken stock. Otherwise, leave it out.
  5. Transfer dressing to a baking dish. Cover with foil or lid, bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil or lid and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the dressing is lightly browned. Enjoy!
