Homemade Cornbread Stuffing with Bacon

What is more synonymous with chicken and bird recipes than stuffing?

I also list a couple optional ingredients in the way of cranberries and pecans now the cranberries is my New England girl heritage sneaking into the recipe as where the pecans are all southerner.
