Smoked bacon and roasted corn make this dressing unique.
Press corn between several layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture. Set aside.
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove bacon, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon; set aside. Add corn to skillet; toss to coat. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until corn is roasted in appearance. Transfer to a large bowl.
Cook onion, celery, and garlic in butter in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Transfer to large bowl. Add stuffing, crumbled bacon, and pecans, stirring well. Add egg, desired amount of broth, salt, and pepper to stuffing mixture; stir gently.
