Conversation with my son (senior in High School):


Me:  Well I'll eat the stuffing since you don't like it. 

Him:  Of all the inventions, stuffing is one of them.

Me:  It's good! 

Him:  It's like taking some soggy bread and putting it inside a dead turkey. 

Me:  Actually you have to start with stale bread and then get it soggy...then stuff it in the behind of the turkey for added flavor...so what could be better than that?

Him:  A nuclear apocalypse.

Me:  Good. More for me!"    

Kids don't know what's good for them!    :pazzo: 



Soooo.....what do y'all put in your stuffing?


I like sausage and pink lady apples. :)

I like sausage and pink lady apples. :)

I put onions, celery and carrots in mine.

My mother makes the best dressing/stuffing that I've ever had.  She puts onions, celery, walnuts and cranberries in hers.
'Sausage and pink lady apples'. Sounds delicious. I use sourdough bread in mine, plus everything I can get away with. Mushrooms are a favorite.
OYSTERS! Except the DW is a vegetarian darn it!
I am a bread stuffing fan.  The family prefers cornbread stuffing.  Around here, carrots in the stuffing is considered exotic.  So it is cornbread, onions, cream soups, maybe, if you feel sneaky, some whole corn.  If I had my way, I would throw the kitchen sink in, and cook it inside the bird, but we don't have the bird since the other adults don't like turkey (can you imagine???) so we have ham.

This is no disrespect, but I have NEVER heard of someone putting whole corn kernels in stuffing.  It doesn't sound like my kind of thing, but that's neat.  My roommate said he's seen that done as a means of keeping the stuffing moist.  Do you just like the flavor or texture? or do you use the corn for other reasons?
I love corn; I am not fond of stuffing -- it's too soggy.

Corn sounds great!  As would cream of corn or that staple of every midwest recipe: cream of mushroom! :)


I love corn chowder too, but I don't eat much corn any more since I mostly do keto and because I'm not really sure you can find corn that isn't GMO anymore.


And Thanksgiving without turkey sounds racist!  I'm sorry you've been bullied into submission. :(

Added to a bread based stuffing. I don't know about French, but it was common in the NE US and the Maritime Provinces of Canada (oyster producing regions) when my Boston born, son of Nova Scotian parents grandfather was learning to cook. He was one of the best cooks I ever knew, and that's how I came to like oyster stuffing. Oh, and hot peppers, too! He had been in the US Merchant Marine, as well as the British Army, and had been all over the world. Somewhere he picked up a liking for peppers. He always kept a jar of pickled hot peppers on the table. I wonder what he'd have thought of some of the varieties available today?
