Your New Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish


I am a purist when it comes to my traditions. Especially holiday traditions. What makes the holidays feel like the holidays is different for each of us. So I was suprised when this non-traditional Thanksgiving side dish became my very favorite part of the meal, many years ago. I’m not even sure how it made it’s debut in our family, but I’m so thankful that this  Broccoli Supreme recipe is now a staple side dish at our Thanksgiving table.


  • 1 egg, slightly beatenside dish
  • 10 oz package frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained (fresh broccoli works just fine, too)
  • 15 oz can of creamed corn
  • 1 Tablespoon grated yellow onion
  • 1 stalk finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup dry cubed stuffing mix


In a bowl, combine first six ingredients. Melt butter and add cubed stuffing mix. Toss to coat. Stir 3/4 cup buttered stuffing mix into the broccoli mixture. Transfer into ungreased 1-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup buttered stuffing cubes on top around the edges of the dish. ( I like the flavor the stuffing adds, so I usually start with 2 cups so I have extra to put on top.) Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

This side dish has it all. I particularly like the way the sweetness from the creamed corn mixes with the savory stuffing.

Tips: The smaller you chop the celery the better, in my opinion. That way it blends and adds a nice crunchy texture without interfering with big chunks. And, this is always the first dish to disappear, so double it if you want leftovers.
