3 stalks celery, diced

1 cup mushrooms, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Handful parsley, minced

4 fresh sage leaves, minced

  3. Remove the vegetables to a large mixing bowl. Stir in the acorn squash, cranberries, and pecans.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the broth and egg, then stir into the stuffing mix. Add the bread and mix well.
  5. Spoon into the muffin tins and bake for an hour.
