Garlic-Scented Stuffing

2 packages bagged stuffing mix (or 3 boxes)
15 roasted garlic cloves reserved from roasting turkey
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
1/4 cup juices from roasted turkey
3 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 cup butter
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1 bunch of celery, finely chopped
Salt and pepper


In a large sauté pan, cook bacon until it becomes translucent. Add the butter, onions and celery and cook until vegetables are soft, about ten minutes. Meanwhile, squeeze out the soft flesh of fifteen of the roasted garlic cloves. In a blender or food processor, blend garlic flesh with 1 cup of the chicken stock until smooth. Add the garlic stock, the remaining stock, the roasted turkey juices, and water to the sauté pan. Once mixture begins to boil, toss in dried stuffing mix, remove from heat, and cover for five minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Fluff and serve.
