Southwest Cornbread and Chorizo Dressing
This colorful, flavorful dish garnered the "Best Dressing" award in Sunset's 2005 Thanksgiving recipe contest.

Triple Mushroom Dressing
Three kinds of mushrooms make this bread dressing a rich and earthy complement to your turkey.

Apricot, Wild Rice, and Bread Dressing
This makes a wonderful vegetarian option if you use vegetable broth instead of meat.

Artichoke-Parmesan Sourdough Dressing
Sunset readers gave this moist, tangy dressing 5-stars and rave reviews.

Cornbread-Chestnut Dressing
To save time you can use your favorite cornbread mix and instead of roasting the chestnuts, you can use 2 cups peeled cooked chestnuts (canned steamed, water-packed, or vacuum-packed).

Wild Rice and Squash Dressing
This tasty dressing features banana squash, but you can use acorn squash if you can't find any in your local market.

Cornbread and Gorgonzola Dressing
Like a cross between a dressing and a savory bread pudding, this rich mix of slightly sweet cornbread, earthy dried mushrooms, and creamy, sharp blue cheese had Sunset's staff clamoring for seconds.
