One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is the side dishes. While stuffing is seldom used inside the bird as it once was, that hasn’t made it any less integral to the spirit of the season! Everyone has their favorite take on the dish; and this one from Food Network is a big winner for us. Suitable for anyone on our meal plan, this version omits bread and the best part? You won’t even miss it!
