Traditional stuffing is elevated by the addition of bacon and cornbread! This Bacon and Cornbread Stuffing will be the best side dish on your Thanksgiving table!
I’m back with more Thanksgiving recipes today! In case you missed Monday’s post (a delicious one might I add), 19 other bloggers and I are sharing our favorite recipes with you as part of what we call a Blogsgiving Dinner. Today is dedicated to the main dish and to my favorite part of the meal: the side dishes! At the bottom of this post are tons of delicious Thanksgiving foods from my blog friends.
I made Bacon and Cornbread Stuffing for our virtual dinner! Because what is Thanksgiving without a huge helping of stuffing. Some (aka TheBetterHalf and me) might say it is the best part of the meal.
Now I am usually a traditional girl when it comes to stuffing – no sausage, no mushrooms, nothing too fancy. And last year I shared that classic stuffing with you, which by the way is an awesome recipe straight from my mom’s recipe box. But since I already have mom’s stuffing on the blog, I had to change it up this year.
My twist? Cornbread. and Bacon. Oh yes. Cornbread Stuffing with Bacon – it tastes as delicious as its sounds! I’m thinking we need to start a new tradition around our house – plain stuffing and cornbread stuffing!
This cornbread stuffing is actually very similar to my mom’s traditional stuffing. I just subbed out some of the bread for cornbread, and added some bacon! The veggies are sautéed in the bacon fat (along with some butter. because this is Thanksgiving after all), giving them so much extra flavor! Then I add tons of both fresh and dried herbs – the smell when they hit the pan is literally the smell of Thanksgiving. So good!
The cornbread gives the stuffing a hint of sweetness and a great texture, and of course the bacon adds tons of flavor. This cornbread stuffing will definitely be a hit at your Thanksgiving table!
Thanksgiving is all about family, friends and delicious food. Luckily, the food blogging community is all about these things as well. To celebrate the holiday, Meghan from Cake ‘n’ Knife and Susannah from Feast + West are hosting Blogsgiving Dinner. There are 20 awesome blogs sharing 52 recipes
The idea is based on the old-fashioned progressive dinner party, in which you’d eat each course at a different guest’s home. Each blogger is bringing one or more dishes to the party on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of this week, so be sure to stop by each one and get some ideas for your own Thanksgiving meal.
