Savannah Seafood Stuffing is full of shrimp and crab and lots of onion, celery, and red bell pepper. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about adding seafood to a casserole that makes it seem more special and elegant. This is always a much looked forward to side dish at Thanksgiving.
I use a combination of herb seasoned stuffing mix and cornbread stuffing mix because I think it produces the best flavor. You could us all one or the other if you wish.
I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing, or dressing as Southerners call it. I like to make at least 2 different kinds. A sausage dressing is a must, but I also like one with a little seafood.
The cornbread mix, shrimp and crab give this Savannah Seafood Stuffing a subtle sweetness that is so good.
I add Cajun seasoning for flavor and also a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup to help bind it and keep it moist.
