Apple Stuffing Balls wrapped in Bacon

who doesn’t love stuffing?????

The perfect accompaniment to any Roast dinner… and therefore the perfect partner for our Easter Roast Chicken Dinner!

This recipe was in the Good Housekeeping December 2008 Magazine Issue.. and I have kept it ever since… (the original recipe was also made using sausage meat… but I opted to increase the amount of bread crumbs instead)
