17 Stuffing Recipes for Thanksgiving and Beyond

How to Make Stuffing plus 17 delicious new stuffing recipes.

I was watching my mom make stuffing for a Fall dinner when I realized that the way I make stuffing was different from the way she makes it. I thought I’d been making it how she’d taught me. I’d clearly changed it over time.

I was positive that her version, the original version, was better then the adaptations I’d accidentally made. I asked her to show me step-by-step what she did. The result is this Stuffing Tutorial that I posted here last year.

What I love about my mom’s stuffing recipe is that it’s very basic. You can take any set of flavors or added ingredients to create a new twist on your favorite stuffing.

With that in mind I decided to look around and see what kind of stuffing recipes are out there. I was looking for recipes to inspire me to try new things. And now I’m sharing what I’ve found with you.

Below you’ll find the links to a bunch of new stuffing recipes to try.

I’d also like to tell you about something that isn’t quite stuffing but almost is. It’s what we call Grannie’s Pie because my husband’s Grannie used to make. She taught it to my father-in-law who taught it to me.

It’s a sage and onion flavored batter that, once baked, is like a cross between Yorkshire pudding and stuffing. It’s delicious with turkey, chicken or pork. A great alternative to stuffing! The recipe for Grannie’s Sage and Onion Pie is over here.

Here are some stuffing recipes from online that I’m thinking of trying out:

Apple, Bacon & Cheddar Cheese Stuffing
Pumpkin Cornbread Stuffing
Challah Stuffing
Gluten Free Stuffing
Slow Cooker Stuffing
Turkey Sage Cornbread Stuffing
Dorothy’s Stuffing
Chicken Sausage Stuffing
Apple Sausage Dressing
Ant on a Log Stuffing
Pumpkin Cornbread Stuffing
Italian Herb Stuffing
Vegetarian Mushroom Stuffing
Easy Sausage Stuffing
Mushroom Kale Sausage Stuffing

If you add something different to your stuffing, please let me know since I’m on the lookout for ideas!

    Thank you so much for including my ants on a log stuffing! It’s really true about the old traditional family recipes being the best. We actually use the recipe card my great-grandmother wrote when we make ours on Thanksgiving for that exact reason! :) Pinned!
