This old-fashioned dressing is a great side dish for the Thanksgiving or alongside roast chicken. Made with saltine crackers, celery, onions, and herbs, it's simple and satisfying.

Better-than-Boxed Vegan and Gluten-Free Stuffing

Rating: 4.6 stars
This vegan and gluten-free stuffing is better than the boxed stuff and very easy to make! Whether your guests are vegan, gluten-free, both, or neither, this stuffing will please the whole crowd! You can toast the bread in advance in order to save time the day you are serving the stuffing.

Vegetarian Cornbread Stuffing

A delicious moist vegetarian cornbread stuffing with applesauce, lemon pepper, thyme, and marjoram that goes well with any main dish.

Easiest Sausage Stuffing

Rating: 4.8 stars
This hack on boxed stuffing is so easy but so good that your guests will think you made it from scratch! Ground sausage with sage adds an especially nice flavor, but you can make this with any mild ground breakfast sausage.

Perfect Polenta Dressing

Rating: 5 stars
This recipe is a result of many years of experimentation to come up with a dressing that my whole family loves. It is a wonderful complement to the requisite holiday turkey, but is equally delicious when served with a smoked pork loin or leg of lamb.
