Thanksgiving is getting closer. This year I am going to do what I say I am going to do every year. I am going to try out a new stuffing recipe. I don’t like trying new recipes on the day of a special meal, so I try them out ahead of time to make sure they are liked by me and my immediate family before I serve guests. These stuffing recipes really have me excited to try something new!
Saving money on Thanksgiving dinner is so important to me but I tend to make dressing one of the more expensive dishes I serve.
Stuffing Prep Tips
- Cut up veggies the day before. Sometimes I even assemble the whole stuffing mix the day before, it all depends on if I have room in the fridge.
- Use an electric knife to get the “perfect” bread cuts. I have a really old, but good electric knife. They just don’t make them like they used to. My mother-in-law finally had to replace hers a couple of years back and the Hamilton Beach brand knife has held up quite well. She loves it!
- Don’t Stuff the Turkey. You might disagree with me, but I like a crispy top stuffing and my turkeys (even if I brine them) get dry when I try stuffing the bird.
- Buy Day Old Bread. You want the bread to be crusty so it can soak up all the juicy goodness. Shop the clearance shelf in the bakery area of the grocery store. You could also go to the bakery outlet in your town.
