Popular Stuffing Recipes

Stuffing recipes are intensely regional, and can differ wildly even from family to family. At it's most basic, stuffing is a side dish (for turkey, come Thanksgiving time, made from stale bread moistened with broth. But the dish has endless variations. (Cornbread! Rye Bread! Sausage! Oysters! Onions! No onions! Everyone has a favorite addition. It's like trying to describe all sandwiches with just one label.) No matter what kind of homemade stuffing you like, the important thing to remember is to infuse it with flavor - after all, you're turning something bland - stale bread - into an iconic Thanksgiving side. So splurge on the good broth, and throw in plenty of fresh herbs. Your guests will thank you.
