  1. They all look amazing!!

  2. Angela Hendricks says:

    Looks delicious! Growing up my dad used to always make a batch of oyster dressing. After seeing your post I’m going to try this recipe!

  3. They all look so delicious, except for the Oyster Stuffing. I love seafood, but not oysters. However, my mother makes the most divine Cornbread Dressing! It is so yummy!!! It has cornbread, Tennessee Pride sausage (that is a must), celery, chicken stock, and pecans in it! Nothing can compare to her “:dressing!” She’s from Georgia so southern food runs deep within us! Thanks for the ideas though! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I think I might try the Stuffing Balls. Our 18 month old grandson is here with us the Thanksgiving & I think they would be fun new recipe to add this year. I like to try at least 1 new recipe every holiday. I think these will be the one.

  5. I never knew there were so many different ways to make stuffing!

  6. Norma Rolader says:

    Yum! Yum! What some delicious dressing ideas… Thank you and may you and your family have a blessed Happy Thanksgiving

  7. You could always make all of them for next year….and let your family decide! I make a traditional stuffing…that is this family’s Favorite …I think it’s all in the bread, and the spices you add! 😉

  8. Dressing starts with a pan of cornbread for my family. I love my mother-in-law’s the best. She makes it in the crock pot! And it is so moist. Mmmmmmm.

  9. Lisa Brown says:

    This year it would be great to try the Sourdough and Mushroom Stuffing,, looks fantastic.

  10. I adore stuffing and wow I love the recipe for stuffing balls. I typically put so much bread in my meatballs, that I don’t give them to anyone else. These stuffing balls are perfect for me!!!

    Hi Suzy,
    my family foots are deep in south Alabama and Georgia and we make cornbread dressing! My SIL was gluten free last year and I make gluten free cornbread dressing for him, which he said was delicious and reminded him of his grandmother dressing!
    the recipe with the cranberries sounded good to me , but I would be the only one eating it. Thanksgiving in our family is not the time to experiment with new recipes, it is always the old family recipes we use with keeps everyone happy!

    1. My roots are in Georgia, so I’m right there with you! I’m allowed to introduce new recipes at Thanksgiving, but I’m NOT allowed to take any of the traditional dishes away! 😀

  12. I grew up in Connecticut where we called it stuffing. I was just telling a friend that stuffing is the “weakest link” in my Thanksgiving feast. Looking forward to trying your recipes!

  13. In my family here in the south we always do traditional cornbread dressing. I just lost my mother this year so I will be doing the dressing this year and I hope I do my mither’s Recipe justice. She never had measurements it was always a little of this and pinch of that! We will see this thanksgiving.
