Sausage Corn Bread Dressing

The phrases “holiday dinner” and “low-fat” are seldom used together, unless Rebecca Baird’s corn bread stuffing is on the menu. Made with turkey sausage, herbs, fruit and veggies, this recipe lets you enjoy all the trimmings without the guilt, notes the field editor from Salt Lake City, Utah.

Sweet N Sour Beans

This recipe is popular on both sides of the border. It came from a friend in Alaska, then traveled with me to old Mexico, where I lived for 5 years, and is now a potluck favorite in my Arkansas community. It's easy to keep the beans warm and serve from a slow cooker. -Barbara Short, Mena, Arkansas

Bacon & Oyster Stuffing

Bacon & Oyster Stuffing

Smoky bacon leads the way in this East Coast-inspired stuffing. If you really like oysters, add an extra can. Doubling the oysters will add about 17¢ per serving.—Sherry Thompson, Seneca, South Carolina

This distinctive stuffing is awesome alongside ham, chicken or turkey. I've been a rhubarb fan since I was a girl, so when a friend suggested this recipe, I had to try it. Now when I serve this side dish, my guests are usually curious about my special ingredient...and they love it! -Kathy Petrullo, Long Island City, New York

Red Beans and Rice Mix

Red Beans and Rice Mix

Since there's food galore during the holidays themselves, I like giving this zippy mix as an after-Christmas present instead. I just slip the containers of seasoning, beans and rice into a decorative paper bag. A recipe card completes the package.

Fried Sausage Grits

My mother used to make a version of this recipe using hominy and salmon. One day I substituted sausage and grits and decided I liked it better than the original.

Grits Casserole

Grits is a main ingredient for many Southern meals. I've had this recipe for years and never grow tired of it. It's especially good to serve on a lazy weekend, since leftover portions are very tasty served cold.

Plenty of pecans and bacon give this stuffing a unique flavor— while using a packaged mix cuts down on the preparation time.

I made this recipe over 45 years ago for the first pheasant I ever roasted—it was a special dinner I prepared to thank a wonderful sister and brother-in-law for all of their help when we bought our first home. To this day, it's a favorite with our friends and family when they come to visit.

Cajun Spiced Broccoli

I usually make this minus the Creole seasoning, but a few weeks ago, I decided to try adding a different spice just to see what would happen. I loved it! It's garlicy, spicy and crunchy! —Krista Frank, Krista Frank, Rhododendron, Oregon

At church socials and family reunions, this satisfying dressing has always been well received. It's a favorite with our family, too. I cut back on the recipe to serve a smaller group. -Ruth Hayward Lake Charles, Louisiana
