THE BEST HOLIDAY EVER CREATED Thanksgiving coming up in just a few short days, I think it”s obvious that my mind is wrapped around one thing: food. While I love turkey more than any meat, there is one thing that I just can never seem to get enough of each year — STUFFING. Stuffing is so delicious, it should be its own food group. And if your family is anything like mine, stuffing is one hot commodity come turkey day. You better be the first to get a good helping because if not, you”re out of luck! And in honor of my favorite side dish (or in some cases, DINNER), I thought it would be a great time to look at some different versions of stuffing. Because in my own opinion, you can just never have enough!
All of these recipes can be found on the Thanksgiving section of the Food Network website. If you haven”t seen it yet, be sure to take a look! They have a bunch of great tips and how-to”s. Here are some yummy stuffing recipes, just an example of what you”ll find on the website!
Yum yum yum! You can never go wrong with traditional bread stuffing. Fresh onion and celery is a must! Some people like to bake their stuffing in individual muffin tins, which is a cute idea — not so practical for myself and my usual mountain of stuffing each holiday, but to each their own!
I”m a big fan of pecans and I love all types of foods containing them. This bourbon-pecan stuffing sounds awesome! It also contains pears — basically it”s a classic stuffing with a little kick. It adds a little jazz to the Thanksgiving table while still keeping tradition!
What better way to celebrate the end of the Fall season than to incorporate apples into everything? This apple-fennel stuffing is obviously no exception. Perfect for apple fanatics that want to embrace Fall in every way possible, especially on the greatest holiday of the year! This recipe includes cranberries, too. Yummy!
I love bacon, as does most of the world. While this stuffing goes a little off-tradition, it”s still a great option to have on the table next to the classic stuffing. Who doesn”t love a little variety? This recipe includes a pound of bacon and chopped chestnuts … get in my belly.
SPINACH-SAUSAGE CORNBREAD STUFFING
Take cornbread stuffing, add crumbled sausage, spinach and some parmesan cheese. What do you get? Spinach-Sausage Cornbread Stuffing. Oh my .. I really don”t know what other word to use to describe this stuffing other than FANTASMICAL. Yeah, I used fantasmical. Pretty sure this recipe is worthy of the title, though. Just saying.
