Savor the Best’s Sage, Lemon, and Mushroom Stuffing

Pat and Dahn created such a flavorful, hearty stuffing. The lemon takes the stuffing up just a notch with the little bit of added acidity. Even better is this stuffing can be made the night before which reduces some of the chaos the day of Thanksgiving.

Rants from My Crazy Kitchen’s Slow Cooker Stuffing with Bacon, Onions, and Sage

I’m not going to lie, this is a pretty perfect stuffing recipe. Not only is it made in a slow cooker (my favorite type of recipes), it also has bacon in it. Plus, it is filled with traditional herbs and spices.

Southern Cornbread Dressing from Platter Talk

So this cornbread stuffing is different than others because it uses BISCUITS as the second bread. I LOVE biscuits and the idea of them in my stuffing is glorious. April Lee even shares a video of her making.
