Cranberry Nut Stuffing Recipe

Cranberry Nut Stuffing Recipe

Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without the stuffing. I can let the turkey variation slide but definitely not the stuffing. This is truly my favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal. I love to dress up the stuffing with nuts and fruit. This is one of my traditional recipes and just about everyone I cook it for seems like like it just as much as I do based on the sound made as soon as they spoon in a mouthful of stuffing.

The nuts wake you up with a crunch that is not generally expected in stuffing and the sweet fruit makes it so good you may even prefer stuffing of dessert. Depending on how often I make stuffing, I like to change up the nuts and fruit. Raisins and dates also do the trick.
