Cook two kinds of rice together, according to package directions. Once cooked, scoop into a large bowl. In a large skillet, cook bacon to be slightly crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
Pour off bacon grease, leaving 3 tablespoons in the pan. Sautee onions and celery in the grease until tender, 5 minutes.
Stir cooked vegetables, bacon, salt, pepper, cream, sage and cranberries into the rice. At this point, you could stuff your turkey with this stuffing or pour into a baking dish, cover with foil and warm in a 300-degree oven until ready to serve.
Right before serving, top with toasted slivered almonds.
