In my humble opinion, Thanksgiving dinner is all about the sides!  Yes, the turkey is the centerpiece of the meal, and you cannot have Thanksgiving dinner without a really spectacular bird. (By the way, I’ve got 3 Easy Tips for a Moist and Delicious Turkey that you need to check out!)  But, there are certain sides like good Parmesan Mashed Potatoes, asparagus or green beans, cranberry sauce, and dinner rolls with butter are a must.  Another must: a really awesome stuffing recipe, like my Everything Thanksgiving Stuffing!

What does the stuffing include?

I came up with this stuffing recipe a number of years ago when I first hosted Thanksgiving for my husbands family.  It has the perfect amount of flavor, texture and crunch that pairs perfectly with the other sides in your holiday menu.  This stuffing has onion, parsley, celery, pecans, apples, sausage, mushrooms, along with the cornbread and seasoned stuffing cubes and seasoning.  You’ll moisten the mixture with broth for the most perfect side dish that will grace your holiday table! The texture of this stuffing recipe is amazing.

Slow Cooker or Oven?

This stuffing recipe is also versatile enough to be cooked in the oven OR the slow cooker.  I’ve done it in both, and it turns out amazing each way.  I actually prefer the slow-cooker option, as it frees up desperately needed oven space on the day of your holiday dinner.  You’ll likely have dinner rolls, pies, other side dishes, and your Turkey that will need to go in the oven on the big day, so one less dish really helps with planning.
