22 Stuffing Recipes That Promise to Surprise
The holidays are really the height of the “baking season.” Thanksgiving dinner is the ultimate feast, followed closely by Christmas dinner in most households. There’s something about cooking, baking and hosting that brings out our inner Rachel Ray, or Martha Stewart. There are certain traditional dishes that we have come to expect at every holiday feast, so to start off our Mouthfull Monday’s I thought we’d begin with my husbands favorite: Stuffing.
Since variety is the spice of life and the essence of every well executed meal, we felt just having a single stuffing recipe just wasn’t right. Stuffing is the perfect dish to change up. As much as we love all the thanksgiving fare, having a pleasant surprise in something we’ve become accustomed to makes for a memorable meal and lots of compliments. Besides we all rely on Stove Top too much. So we did a little searching for some pleasant surprises on this simple dish to really make your stuffing POP.
Go Against the Grain
The bread is a key ingredient of stuffing. Changing the type of bread you use will change the texture, flavor and the WOW factor.
Chicken Out on the Meat
We tend to match our meats, but a change of flavor can be a pleasant mouth opener.
Cheese Makes Everything Better
Cheese in the stuffing, happy thought indeed.
Don’t Forget the Fruits and Veggies
Make it a well balenced meal by adding a variety fruits and veggies.
Think Outside the Turkey
No one actually stuffs their turkeys anymore for food safety reasons, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stuff something.
