Bacon and Walnut Stuffing

This is from new years day where we had a chicken, bread and no sausage for a traditional stuffing.

Cut in pieces and fry 2-3 pieces of bacon (streaky bacon in the UK).
when they turn translucent add a handful of crushed or chopped walnuts, and cook until the bacon begins to brown.

Chop up one medium onion and add to the mixture. Saute until the onion is translucent.

Season with:
pinch nutmeg
2 pinches ground ginger
3 pinches sage and thyme (I suppose in the UK "Mixed seasonings" would work here).

Tear enough bread for the bird into chunks, add the bacon, onion, walnut mix + its drippings to the bread. Then add an egg and mix thoroughly.

Stuff (dress?) the bird and bake the way you normally would.
