Whole Wheat Stuffing Recipe

5 from 1 reviews

This Clean Eating stuffing recipe has it all – whole wheat bread, bacon and tons of veggies. This actually saves times because it’s basically two sides in one.




  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Add the cubed bread to cookie sheets and bake 15 minutes, until it starts to lightly brown
  3. Turn down oven to 350 degrees
  4. Add the bacon to a large skillet, cook until crispy, and then remove with a slotted spoon
  5. Add onion, garlic, carrots, and brussel sprouts to the leftover bacon grease and cook until tender crisp (if the veggies start sticking to the pan, add a small amount of water)
  6. Add the apples in the last 4-5 minutes of cooking, and season well with salt and pepper
  7. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 5 minutes
  8. Slowly add the bread, bacon, and herbs to the vegetable mixture. Stir well, and transfer to a lightly greased 3 quart baking dish (casserole dish).
  9. Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes, uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes


I used a natural, uncured bacon, but regular bacon would work just fine.
