Pumpkin Cornbread Stuffing with Cranberries

Pumpkin Cornbread Stuffing with Cranberries

Cornbread is a wonderful Thanksgiving side dish, especially if you have baked up a batch of my delicious Pumpkin Cornbread. The cornbread can be served as-is or it can be turned into a delicious holiday stuffing that will compliment any big family dinner. I have made all kinds of different stuffing recipes in the past, from Bacon, Pumpkin and Pecan Stuffing to Caramelized Onion Stuffing and Cranberry, Pancetta and ... Read More »

Cranberry, Pancetta and Butternut Squash Stuffing

Cranberry, Pancetta and Butternut Squash Stuffing

Stuffing is one of my favorite parts of a big holiday meal, largely because I rarely have stuffing the rest of the year. Whether you call it stuffing or dressing (and the name largely depends on what region of the country you live in), it is a staple for most of us around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Stuffing, unfortunately, can get a little bit boring when ... Read More »

Cranberry, Apple and Sage Stuffing

Cranberry and Apple Stuffing

Oven-baked stuffing is a classic Thanksgiving side dish. While there are fans of stuffing that is actually stuffed in the bird, I find that stuffing baked in a baking dish is a lot more satisfying because the dish will have a crispy top and a perfectly moist base (and you don’t have to worry about the juice from an undercoked bird running into it). I ... Read More »

Browned Butter and Sage Stuffing with Walnuts and Cranberries

Browned Butter and Sage Stuffing

Thanksgiving is stuffing season as far as I’m concerned. I occasionally make it during the rest of the year, but I always do several batches around Thanksgiving and between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Even if you have a very large oven, sometimes it just doesn’t seem like there is enough space in there to bake everything that you want to bake. This is particularly true around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, where many of us entertain large groups of family and friends for holiday dinners, but can be true any time of year that you are having guests ...

Bacon, Pumpkin and Pecan Stuffing, plated

I think that the name Bacon, Pumpkin and Pecan Stuffing alone should be enough to sell almost anyone on giving this tasty stuffing recipe a try. I love making stuffing for Thanksgiving and will often make several batches in the weeks leading up to the big holiday to fine tune my recipes and try variations. This is one of them. I’ve put sausage in stuffing ... Read More »

Roasted Garlic Stuffing

Roasted Garlic Stuffing, served

Stuffing is one of the many foods that just never looks as good as it tastes. Actually, I should say that it starts to look very good but only after you know how it tastes. When I was a kid I always shied away from the stuffing. It looked “wet” or “icky” or there was “stuff” in it. Now, the exact same stuffing recipe makes ... Read More »

Stuffing vs dressing, and regional preferences

Every year at Thanksgiving, the seemingly age-old debate arises as to what exactly constitutes stuffing and what constitutes dressing. Both “stuffing” and “dressing” are terms applied to the traditional Thanksgiving side dish of a most, seasoned bread (or other starch, like rice of potatoes) and vegetable mixture. It is either cooked inside the turkey or alongside the bird, and your preferred term for the dish ... Read More »
