4. Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms: Simply blitz a few slices of your favorite g-free sandwich bread into bread crumbs for these delectable herb and cheese mushroom caps. You’ll be stuffing yourself silly with ’em in no time. (via Udi’s Gluten-Free)
5. Za’atar Bagel Chips With White Bean Dip: Olive oil and basil-oregano-thyme-seasoned bagel chips are a natural accompaniment for white bean dip. Looking for a more lively dunk? Give a batch of out-of-the-ordinary hummus a go. (via May I Have That Recipe?)
6. Cornbread Stuffing With Chestnuts, Leeks and Chanterelles: This gorgeous stuffing is brimming with cubes of homemade skillet cornbread and seasonal produce. Trust that it’s just terrific served alongside turkey. (via The Bojon Gourmet)
7. Creamed Leeks: Sweet leeks barely need any doctoring to make them into a side folks will swoon over. A braise in white wine followed by a splash of heavy cream never hurt anything either. (via Martha Stewart)

20. Apple Tart With Almond Topping: Make this tart in place of the usual double-crust apple pie or tricky tarte tatin. Featuring caramelized apples and a crisp almond topping baked inside your favorite pastry, it’s certain to be a crowd-pleaser. (via The New York Times)
