Stuffing Recipes for Thanksgiving

One thing I am thankful for is that I don't have to cook thanksgiving dinner! Although I LOVE to entertain, the whole idea of preparing the biggest meal of the year is terrifying to me! Failure is just out of the question! People wait all year for this - you can't let them down! I may work up enough courage to practice this year, but you won't be able to see how I do until after.

So in the meantime, I came up with this collection of Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipes from some of my favorite blogs! Stuffing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner (if I had to choose just one!) My favorite is actually my mom's meat stuffing, but I will post that later on this month so stay tuned, it's a good one! 

Here are a few bread stuffing recipes. Some are more traditional and some have fun ingredients like bacon, ginger, mushrooms, and goat cheese (we know how much I love goat cheese!) There is also a figure-friendly option and a vegan one!

Enjoy!


Made with whole wheat bread and lots of Crimini mushrooms, this recipe is packed with flavor and texture, and won't have you worrying about having seconds! 

The classic stuffing recipe that we all love! I love how there are pine nuts in this one!

I love the additions of wild rice and tangy goat cheese in a traditional bread stuffing. This one's a keeper     for sure!

Loaded with apples, pine nuts, shiitake mushrooms, cranberries and seasoned with ginger and fresh basil! Just look at those cranberries!!

This is a combination I just have to try! Love the salty feta with the sweet pears and smoky bacon!

Center: Apple Cranberry Stuffing from Stonewall Kitchen Blog
This stuffing is made with a whole jar of their Apple Cranberry Chutney. They also have create a whole meal based on this jar of yummy goodness!

I leave the dinner to my mom. I am always willing to help but don't want to have it on my shoulders either. All of these stuffing recipes are making me crave the whole meal. How many more days?
