Savory Fig and Walnut Stuffing


Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s always a special time to come together with family and friends to remember all the blessings in life.

I’ve had all the dishes I am making planned out for over a week now and a Thanksgiving stuffing recipe made with fresh bread crumbs is always on the top of my list.
Stuffing made with fresh bread crumbs tastes so much better than those dry cubes found in box mixes and it only takes a few extra minutes to prepare.
Savory fig and walnut stuffing is a twist on a traditional stuffing that will make you never want to go back to the boring box mix. The herbs and dried figs are the perfect amount of spice and sweetness. It has become my new favorite stuffing recipe that makes random appearances at my table through out the year.

To learn how to make it Savory Fig and Walnut Stuffing heard over to A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa.
