Turkey day wouldn’t be the same without everyone’s favorite savory staple — stuffing. We’re celebrating Stuffing Day (Nov. 20) early with the best mouth-watering recipes we could find. Whether you’re a traditional stuffing chef or you like to get creative with your ingredients, there’s something here to fill you up with great ideas.
You can’t knock an original. There’s a reason stuffing is a staple, and that’s because the original recipe complements the bird perfectly. Try out this recipe from Averie Cooks to remind you of Thanksgivings from the old days. With classic ingredients like french bread, celery, rosemary, thyme and butter, you’ll take a yummy walk down memory lane.
Not Your Mother’s Stuffing
There’s nothing better than a gentle twist on the classic, but for some, sausage is a stuffing must. We agree! Add even more substance to your favorite carbo-licious side dish with sourdough bread, hazelnuts, and sausage in this recipe from Bon Appetit. Switch up the Italian sausage for breakfast sausage for another take on this new classic.
Beer Cheese Stuffing
This one’s for all the beer lovers and cheese heads. Get crazy with a new-age pub style stuffing from Delish. From the beer-soaked bread to sharp cheddar, your guests will be begging for this recipe. Plus, if your family has a stuffing contest, you’d win!
Gluten Free Cornbread Stuffing
We’re taking it down South with classic stuffing gone gluten-free with cornbread made from oat flour and cornmeal. All the classic ingredients but with a sweeter touch of honey and corn. Scoop up a great recipe for The Best Cornbread Stuffing Ever from Ambitious Kitchen.
Croissant. Stuffing. (We know – WOW!) If you’re feeling extra, swap out dried bread for flaky, buttery croissants in Half Baked Harvest‘s Mushroom Croissant Stuffing. It’s sure to be a showstopper for your Turkey Day guests. It’s gorgeous and so decadent.
