I think we’re all in agreement that the stuffing (or dressing – I say tomato, you say tomato) is the best part of the turkey feast, isn’t it? And while I almost always stick to the same old bread-onion-celery-sage stuffing of my childhood, I love to peruse stuffing recipes and dream of what I might make if I had the guts to do something new, for once. But you know the Thanksgiving rules: stray from the usual and you may get lynched by your family.
I love getting new recipe ideas from fellow food bloggers, and so I took a little stroll around to see what everyone’s cooking up this year (and at Thanksgivings past). Here – I rounded up some links for you to peruse. (Yes, this is what I do on Saturday nights. My 20 year old self would likely not be impressed.)
