One Thanksgiving, I lost the recipe I planned to use, so I threw this together. My cousin Sandy, a die-hard traditional stuffing fan, said this was the best stuffing she’d ever tasted! Talk about a compliment! —Beverly Norris, Evanston, Wyoming
Being from California, my family has always been big veggie eaters. I wanted to share a little taste of home with my in-laws so I created this dish for Thanksgiving. You don't have to let it sit overnight, but it's a nice make-ahead option and the flavors mesh more that way. —Patricia Broussard, Lafayette, Louisiana
This recipe puts stuffing into a muffin form for a special presentation. I made these when I cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner. You can also bake the stuffing in a greased baking dish.—Tricia Bibb, Hartselle, Alabama
I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving. My husband is a picky eater, but he ate more of the stuffing than the turkey! If you have leftovers, top some with an over-easy egg for breakfast.—Adriana Torres, El Paso, Texas
I first made this recipe on Christmas...the oohs and aahs from my family were a delight! In addition to the holidays, I sometimes make a crown roast for Sunday dinner - it reminds me of my childhood, when Sunday dinners were always special. People would often stop by in the afternoon hoping to be asked to stay for a meal since Mom was such a good cook.
I use spinach and artichoke dip to add creaminess and keep my stuffing from getting dry. Add to that sun-dried tomatoes and basil and this dish takes on a fresh Italian twist. —Sally Sibthorpe, Shelby Township, Michigan
At her home in Carrollton, Missouri, Ruby Harman dresses up stuffing mix with pork sausage and jarred mushrooms to create this in-a-dash dressing. The hearty side dish is terrific with chicken, turkey or pork.
If you're looking for a dish to win over family and friends, you can't go wrong with my fruit and nut stuffing. I made it for the first Thanksgiving I celebrated with my fiance's extended family. It was a hit! —Amy Burton, Cary, North Carolina
