I'm trying to gather a Thanksgiving menu and I really need a recipe for stuffing. I normally just jazz up stove top with celery and onions. Does anyone have a good stuffing recipe? How about recipes for other dishes you may make that are a hit for the holidays? I think I'm just tired of the same old stuff.

I like a basic stuffing. Give or take on the spices sage ,garlic ,onion and celery are all that i use .
Here's a good basic stuffing or dressing recipe.
1/2 C butter
1 med onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
4-6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. savory
1 T dried parsley
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
8 C stale bread,broken into one-inch pieces
about 3 C poultry stock
Serves 6-8

Melt butter in large skillet and add all ingredients except the bread and stock. Cook over medium heat until onions are soft. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Add the bread and stock and mix well.

To stuff a turkey: Fill main turkey cavity and neck cavity with stuffing. Bake remaining dressing in a dish as outlined below.

To bake dressing in pan: Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 15 x 10 inch baking dish. Transfer stuffing to prepared dish. Cover with buttered foil and bake until heated through, about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
