Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing #CranberryWeek

Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing

Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing is a great alternative to traditional bread stuffing. A slightly sweet side that goes great with poultry.

I never make the same Thanksgiving meal twice. Of course there are a few favorites that are a given like turkey, gravy, sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes. That’s where the same old Thanksgiving dinner ends.

Switching up the vegetables, stuffing and sides keeps the meal and the conversation fresh.

Even the cranberry sauce gets a face lift here and there like this Cranberry Grape version.

Stuffing is the easiest side to change a bit. I switch from traditional bread stuffing to chestnut stuffing, mushroom stuffing and of course, cornbread versions.

The base for Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing is this quick bread recipe but any cornbread recipe will work as well. You can just add dried cranberries instead of the baked in fresh ones.
