Countdown to Thanksgiving:
Top #4 Stuffing (and Dressing) Recipe to Be Thankful


With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we’re continuing our countdown to the holiday with our top holiday recipes.

I think most people will agree that it wouldn’t be Turkey Day without, well, turkey! And of course, even the most succulent turkey needs a little help from its side dish friends. For some that means sweet potato pie, for others, it’s green bean casserole or mashed potatoes. But the true companion for turkey is, undoubtedly, the stuffing. Now whether you call it stuffing or dressing, one thing is for sure: Everyone at your table will want you to pass some more of it!

If your stuffing is a little lacking, or if you just want to spice up your Thanksgiving table with a new recipe, why not check out one of our top 7 Stuffing (and Dressing) Recipes from our recipe site – Holiday Eats.
