Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In heavy-bottomed skillet, cook bacon, celery, onion and garlic over medium heat until bacon is crisp and vegetables are tender. Do not drain.

In large bowl, combine eggs, parsley, poultry seasoning and pepper. Add cornbread, bread cubes and grated apple; toss lightly until mixed. Add bacon mixture and broth, stirring lightly to moisten. Place in buttered 2-quart casserole dish and bake, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until mixture is firm and top is browned.
