Thanksgiving 'Challah-Day' stuffing has cranberries, chestnuts, mushrooms and more

Inflation is looking less temporary than originally advertised

What’s behind the high price of everything – and what will be the political cost?

Nothing says Thanksgiving like holiday stuffing.

Bonnie Taub-Dix, RDN, nutrition consultant, media trainer, and author of Read It Before You Eat It – Taking You from Label to Table has been making Thanksgiving dinner for more than 25 years. This “challah-day” stuffing reigns supreme as her top choice. 

With hints of sweetness from the challah, cranberries, apricots, chestnuts and figs; mushrooms, garlic, and onion, balance things out with savory flavor, while fresh herbs like parsley, thyme and rosemary (or whatever you have on hand — dried herbs work, too) round out the mix. 

Experiment with nuts, as well, which add a nice element of texture to the dish. Vegetarian? Swap low-sodium chicken broth for low-sodium veggie broth. Get the recipe below.
