Ingredients
  • 7 oz Arnold seasoned stuffing mix (about half the bag)
  • 8 ounces Applegate Naturals Uncured Sunday Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 ounces Apple & Maple chicken sausage, diced
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2¾ cups whole milk
  • 12 large cage free eggs
  • 1-2 dashes garlic powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use some of the bacon fat from frying up the bacon to grease a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle the stuffing in the dish, spreading evenly, and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the bacon, sausage, cheese, chives, and pepper, mixing thoroughly. Spread evenly over the stuffing.
  4. In a large bowl (and I mean large--I had to use the 6 Qt bowl from my mixer), whisk together the milk, eggs, and garlic powder, beating until fluffed up well. Pour over the meat mix in the dish.
  5. Bake for 50-60 minutes, covering with foil after 40 minutes to keep it from browning too much.
  6. Serve warm or keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, reheating in the microwave as needed.
