Mondays With Michelle: Holiday Belly Stuffers

Welcome to Monday's with Michelle! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect time to get into some yummy seasonal dishes! I want to take a few traditional side dishes and show you some great ideas that I have found to kick them up a little.
First things first, what is a Thanksgiving without Stuffing? Well, depending on where you are from, you may call it Dressing, but it is more or less the same thing. (Of course that is up for debate too.) There are cornbread versions, meat filled versions, Oyster filled versions and the old fashioned traditional day old bread version. Check out a few of these versions below.

When it comes to the Thanksgiving  meal starch(s), staples are different in everyone's household. Some like traditional Macaroni and Cheese, some prefer Scalloped Potatoes, also known as Potatoes  Au gratin, some stay away from the cheesy sides and  enjoy Sweet Potato Casserole. The possibilities are endless (and delicious!). Check out some yummy ideas below...

I'd love to hear about all the delicious dishes you and your families make this time of year. Do you make Stuffing or Dressing, or do you think there is even a difference? Please share in the comment section below! Stayed tuned next week, because we'll get into some Turkey tips and delicious desserts.
