Scene-Stealing Holiday Stuffing

StuffingCopyright Tony Gaye Photography 2009

(Family Features) While turkey is in the spotlight at most holiday meals, the prize for best supporting dish definitely goes to stuffing. People often reach for the stuffing before any other side dish on the table. This season, why not serve more than one variety? In addition to a traditional favorite, try something new.
According to the team at Campbell’s Kitchen, who create and test recipes year-round, there are numerous combinations of flavors appropriate for a great stuffing recipe. Dress your table and your taste buds with a Roasted Vegetable and Cornbread Stuffing, which is made easy with a Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned stuffing base, fresh butternut squash, sweet onions, ground cumin and chopped cilantro. The secret ingredient is Swanson Chicken broth, which adds layers of flavor and keeps stuffing from drying out. Other delicious options include Caramelized Onion with Pancetta & Rosemary Stuffing and a Roasted Fennel with Lemon Stuffing. All are sure to delight holiday guests gathered around the dinner table.
