Change up your stuffing this year by making this Pizza Stuffing – stuffing with a pizza twist!
Luckily, I don’t have to make a whole Thanksgiving meal myself. We have a lot of family close by, so the holiday is always spent with family. (I think this is why Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays!) We usually go pot-luck style, each of us choosing what part of the meal we want to contribute.
There are a lot of recipes that we always keep the same – the Cranberry Salad, the Goodman Fruit Salad, the festive green beans, the mashed potatoes. But then my mom and siblings tend to get a little more creative when it comes to the rest.
One recipe that I think lends itself to creativity is the stuffing. Stuffing, dressing – I know there is a big debate about what it is actually called, but I just call it good. And a very important part of the Thanksgiving meal.
And thank goodness Jones Dairy Farm is back again this year with their Stuffing and More website!! This is the only site you will need when it comes to Thanksgiving stuffing this year. There is everything from Butternut Squash Stuffing with Jones Sausage to Jones Ham and Cheese Croissant Stuffing to a Traditional Herb Stuffing with Jones Bacon and Sausage.
And this beauty – Pizza Stuffing with Jones Canadian Bacon.
Don’t ask me where I came up with this idea. I think it’s a given that we love pizza and have it pretty much weekly. So really, pizza is always on my mind. When this idea popped into my head, I knew I had to run with it. It is definitely not your normal, traditional stuffing, but neither was the BBQ Bacon Stuffing I created last year. I say even if you want to stick with tradition, choose one or two sides and try something new. 🙂
I used Jones Canadian Bacon in this recipe, along with some pizza sauce and lots of cheese. It really does taste like a pizza in stuffing form! I have raved about the quality of the products from Jones Dairy Farm for years now – and you want nothing but the best when you are feeding your family!! Jones Dairy Farm products can be found at fine retailers nationwide. You can find the nearest retailer here.
Make sure to check out the Stuffing and More website for all things stuffing, and then head over the Jones Dairy Farm website for more recipes using their all natural products. Their products are certified gluten free and naturally smoked. And you won’t have to scratch your head when you read the ingredient label because it is so short and you will recognize all of the ingredients. All of that in addition to being the best tasting pork products out there, in my opinion!
