Get Creative With Stuffing

Stuffing might just be the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. Stuffing is at its heart a savory combination of flavors and textures and the recipe varieties are endless.

Even the pickiest eaters can get excited about stuffing. Get everyone involved in the cooking by asking your kids to offer recipe ideas and then assign them a job. From weighing in on the ingredients, to tearing up the bread or chopping the celery, stuffing encourages the best kind of family teamwork.

Although the traditional sage bread stuffing is always a hit, asking your kids to help with the cooking may inspire your own unique family recipe. Here are a few of our favorite non-traditional stuffing ideas:

Italian bread stuffing with crispy salami. Use dried Italian bread cubes in this stuffing. Make crispy DI LUSSO® Hard Salami by microwaving for about 30 seconds, then crumble onto stuffing. (See image above.)

Pumpernickel stuffing with chopped capocollo and swiss. Use dried pumpernickel bread cubes in this stuffing. Add thin slices of DI LUSSO® Capocollo. Top with thin slices of DI LUSSO® Baby Swiss.

Cornbread stuffing with apples, prosciutto and walnuts. Use dried cornbread cubes in this stuffing. Add chopped DI LUSSO® Prosciutto, chopped apples and toasted walnuts.
