Another option is stuffed turkey thighs with cornbread stuffing. The addition of cornbread in this stuffing adds a touch of sweetness to your traditional Thanksgiving dressing.

Finally, for a different twist on stuffed turkey, try stuffed turkey meatloaf with apple and sage stuffing.

Plus, using ground turkey instead of a whole bird means this recipe is easier to prepare and serves a larger number of people.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the chaotic energy of 2020 has perhaps never felt more palpable. In the before times, next week would mark the beginning of the traditional holiday season (unless you’re Mariah Carey, who operates on her own private time-space continuum). There’d be mask-free air travel, half-hearted office parties, big family gatherings, and maybe a run-in with an old high school flame who’s now a widowed carpenter selling hand-crafted nutcrackers at the local Christmas bazaar, if you were the protagonist in a Hallmark movie.
This year, things probably “look a little different,” as they’re saying. The annual Macy’s parade will march without a crowd for the first time ever. Due to surging COVID-19 cases across the U.S., the CDC is recommending that people only celebrate Thanksgiving with those in their immediate household, and some states have even restricted the amount of guests people can have in their homes.
Whether or not the size of your typical Thanksgiving meal has been affected, perhaps the vibes have been affected. The holidays are usually a time of heightened emotions, whether it’s joy, melancholy, or a lot of both, and this year we have much to be emotional about. Maybe you’ve been repressing all of your feelings for nine months and all it took was the Celine Dion cover of John Lennon’s “Happy XMas (War Is Over)” to melt you into a puddle of tears in the car.
