Preheat oven to 325°F. In a medium saute pan over medium heat, cook bacon, lup cheong and ground pork, about 10 minutes. When cooked, add in mushrooms, onion and celery. Cook for 3 minutes. Add cilantro, green onions and water chestnuts. In a large bowl, pour in the bread cubes and then add the cooked ingredients. Stir to mix together, add in butter, broth, salt and pepper to taste. Place in baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 9 servings.
Tip: Substitute fresh shiitake mushrooms with dried shiitake mushrooms and your stuffing will develop a deep and savory flavor. Save the water from soaking the dried mushrooms and add it to soups or broths.
