When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, we know what’s really important. Sure, everyone looks forward to the main course and the spread of side dishes. Yeah, there’s the pumpkin pie and other indulgent desserts. But we know which dish everyone really looks forward to most: the stuffing. Maybe it’s because, for some reason, many of us don’t make stuffing all year long so when Thanksgiving rolls around, we are seriously looking forward to a big plate full of it.

There are so many ways to make stuffing. Some people like it with cornbread while others swear by sourdough or challah. Some families make stuffing with rice. Other families don’t even call it “stuffing,” but “dressing.” Whatever your family tradition is, we’re sure that you’ll love these recipes
