More, more, more…and more recipes for your holiday dinners! Today, we are moving on to stuffing! Italian Herb Stuffing, it’s so easy and incredible delicious! Made with fresh Italian herbs, baguette and pearl onions.
I mentioned in the earlier post (I believe it was the Turkey Collection post) that we go to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. I usually bring some sides and dessert. Some sides we keep traditional but I like to throw in a new one each year.
Past couple of weeks, I’ve been experimenting with new sides and came up with some amazing recipes. I’ve shared them with you! (I am also not done! More to come!)
My hubby usually takes care of the stuffing because he likes a box mix and I take care of the rest of the sides. This year, I wanted to show him how easy and delicious stuffing can be made from scratch instead of a box.
This Italian Herb Stuffing was deeeeeelicious and so easy! I absolutely love the use of a Baguette because it brings its own texture and flavor. Fresh herbs are also a key ingredient here. You already know how much I love fresh herbs. There is no need for seasoning when you use herbs.
