  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a shallow 2 1/2-qt baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Place bread on a large rimmed baking sheet and coat with cooking spray; spread into an even layer and bake until toasted, 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, toss squash, Brussels sprouts, apples, fennel, shallots, 1 Tbsp oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl until combined; spread in a single layer over 2 large rimmed baking sheets and coat with cooking spray. Roast until browned and tender, stirring once and switching pans between oven racks halfway through baking, about 25 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, coat a large skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add bacon; cook until crisp, turning occasionally, 4-5 minutes. Drain on paper towels; coarsely chop.
  5. Spoon roasted vegetables into a large mixing bowl; add bread, bacon, remaining 1 Tbsp oil, broth, egg, thyme, rosemary and sage and stir well. Spoon stuffing into prepared baking dish; coat top with cooking spray. Cover with foil; bake until hot, about 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle evenly with pecans. Bake until top is crispy, about 10 minutes more; sprinkle with parsley.
