My grandmother often made this for my family at holidays and also just with good homemade meals. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Mom's Sausage and Cornbread Dressing

Rating: 4.75 stars
My mom passed this recipe down to me before she passed away. I have had this dressing since I was a child, and to me it is the best I have ever tasted. This recipe is not a quick side dish, it needs time and work for prep and cooking, but is very worth it.

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing

Rating: 4.44 stars
I needed to recreate a family favorite to work with my allergies. This is a perfect basic stuffing recipe. Delicious as is, or ripe for your favorite add-ins! No need to exclude anyone THIS holiday season!

Thanksgiving Bacon Stuffing

Rating: 3.73 stars
This stuffing recipe has been in my family for decades. How can you go wrong with bacon? Whether it be baked in muffins tins or right inside the turkey, this is sure to be a hit!

Pecan and Apricot Sourdough Bread Stuffing

Rating: 4.35 stars
This savory stuffing is a little tangy and a little sweet. And it's so easy to make that you won't have to wait for a holiday to enjoy this dish with your family.

Minnesota Real Wild Rice Stuffing

Rating: 3.67 stars
The nutty flavor of wild rice makes a great combo with dried apricots, pine nuts, and traditional ingredients. I combined some recipes and the result was eagerly consumed. When I made this I fully cooked the rice. This is a forgiving and flexible recipe. There are so many different things to add or substitute: walnuts, almonds, orange zest, dried cranberries, mushrooms, more bread, whatever you prefer.

Cajun Turkey Stuffing

Rating: 4.5 stars
This is a rice and sausage stuffing that is always a hit. No one ever tires of eating this as leftovers - it doesn't even need any turkey to go with it to make a nice snack or meal. But stuff a turkey with it, and you have an excellent alternative to traditional bread stuffings. The recipe shown here is the huge Thanksgiving-day-with-tons-of-leftovers version. You can obviously cut it down proportionately for smaller meals. The original recipe, as I received it, called for addition of a couple of cans of shucked oysters, something not to my taste, but you can add this if you wish.

Leslie's Broccoli, Wild Rice, and Mushroom Stuffing

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is the only stuffing I ever make and it gets RAVES! Not only is it beautiful, it has a wonderful meld of flavors and textures. Want something different than a sage dressing? Try mine!

Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing

Gravy-Stuffed Stuffing Muffins

Rating: 5 stars
Switch things up this Thanksgiving! Instead of serving a basket of dinner rolls, let your family feast on these gravy-stuffed stuffing muffins. Each muffin bakes up with a crispy exterior, a moist interior, and a nugget of thick, sausage-filled country gravy in the center. They might sound sort of crazy, but they're a must-try for any stuffing fanatic at your table.

Pineapple Stuffing

Rating: 4.64 stars
A scrumptious pineapple and bread cube stuffing that is great as a side dish with ham. I often make this dish for the holidays.

Best Sausage Stuffing

Rating: 4.55 stars

This stuffing has lots of flavor and is nice and moist. You can also change the ingredients to your liking. I quadruple this recipe and make the extra in my electric roaster, that's how much everyone loves it. This recipe is very adaptable, you can change it around anyway you like and it will still be delicious!
