1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 Loaf Pumpernickel Bread, Cubed

  • 1

    Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain on paper towels. Pour remaining bacon fat into a separate bowl and set aside.

    Using the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the onions, diced celery, garlic, rosemary and thyme and cook until onions are soft and transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved bacon fat.

    Meanwhile, place the pumpernickel bread cubes into a large bowl. Stir in the eggs and onion mixture. Toss to mix evenly.

    Stir the chicken stock and bourbon together in a bowl. Pour the chicken stock mixture over the bread mixture, adding more stock to reach desired consistency. Use your hands to evenly mix the ingredients together.

    Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and spoon stuffing mixture evenly into the dish.
