Turkey (or Tofurky) may be the star of our Thanksgiving dinners, but it is the stuffing that makes it all come together. We’re not fighting our siblings and cousins for the wings. We’re fighting them for the last spoonful of yummy stuffing. Your family probably has a tried-and-true recipe, but there’s no need to stop there. The more stuffing at your table, the happier your relatives (and their bellies) will be. If you’re searching for some fresh inspo for your Thanksgiving dinner, we’ve rounded up some oh-so-yummy stuffing recipes from our favorite food bloggers.
