When you think about Thanksgiving dinner, what is one of the items you always hope to see on the menu? For me, it’s mashed potatoes and rolls. But after that, I absolutely think of stuffing. It’s typically not the star of the show — it’s simply just a side dish, there to accompany all of the other delicious foods. However, without it, I don’t think Thanksgiving would be the same!
With that said, I’m picky about what kind of stuffing I like. For one, I’m not a huge fan of celery, and if that’s a main component, I’m more than likely to pass! Second, I love homemade stuffing. Not to say you’re a terrible person if you make the kind from a box (it’s just fine…just not amazing), but there’s just something so delicious about a stuffing made with fresh ingredients. Last year, I believe, my brother-in-law, David, made the best stuffing I’d ever eaten. I seriously think I ate more of it than anything else!
At the beginning of this month, I started wondering how many different kinds of stuffing recipes there are. As you might guess…there’s a lot. However, many of them have the same components. When I started seeing so many similar kinds, I was convinced that I had to find some yummy and unique kinds. And boy, did I find some! I didn’t want overwhelm you all by sharing 100+ recipes — I mean, if you’re indecisive as I am, with that many choices, a decision wouldn’t be made until after Thanksgiving. However, I did want to share 15 unique stuffing recipes that I really think will make them more than just a side dish at your Thanksgiving dinner! And for those of you who may still love the boxed kind, some of these recipes just dress that kind up a little bit! I’m getting hungry just looking at all these tasty recipes. Yum!
