Next, add the chopped onion and celery. Sautee both of these ingredients on medium-high heat, and keep stirring them around. After the celery and onion is sautéed, add the fuji apples, walnuts or pecans, dried sage, and dried thyme. You want to cook these ingredients for about three to five minutes, just about until the apples begin to soften. Once finished, add all of these ingredients to the bacon in the medium bowl and stir it around with the bacon. Then, add the bacon and vegetables to the bread and give it a good stir. After this, proceed to add the chicken stock to the main bowl and stir it around. Add some salt and pepper to the mixture. Next, grease your muffin tin and press down the bread/vegetable mixture into the muffin tray. Bake the stuffing muffins for about 20 minutes at 350*F.
