There’s no better place to start than with Bon Appétit‘s classic bread stuffing recipe. The magazine has created a handy matrix with the core recipe, plus a range of additions for freestyling based on your tastes (bacon or chorizo or both? maybe oysters? how about cranberries, hazelnuts and leeks for the vegetarians?). This dish is a classic for a reason: It’s no-fail, endlessly adaptable, fast and, most important, delicious.
