After the turkey, most people tend to agree that the stuffing (or dressing if you are in the South) is the next most important dish on any holiday table. In its simplest form, stuffing is a delectable mixture of bread, savory vegetables (is stuffing really stuffing without onions and celery?), aromatic herbs, and a generous glug of some kind of stock to bring everything together. (Sausage also often makes a cameo.) Not only is stuffing a delicious part of a wonderful meal, it’s also so easy to make. It can easily be made ahead of time, which is a fabulous way to prep for an easy-peasy, stress-free Thanksgiving.
Whether baked in the turkey, in a separate casserole dish or both, the stuffing shines. Crispy on the top, fluffy in the middle, stuffing is a crowd-pleaser. Anyone who’s anyone at the Thanksgiving table surely helps themselves to a spoonful (or several).
