We can all agree: No Thanksgiving meal is complete without stuffing. Although we love the down-home-style sausage-and-bread version our grandma’s been cookin’ up for decades, we’re looking to switch things up this year. Think chorizo cornbread stuffing, pancetta and sage stuffin’ muffins and chestnut-leek stuffing. We’re drooling just thinking about these non-traditional options. Don’t worry, we’ve included some classics, too.

1. Challah-Apple Stuffing: Make sure you cut that challah generously and use Granny Smith apples for some acidity. This is about to be everything, promise. (via Buzzfeed)

2. Quinoa, Apple and Sweet Potato Stuffing: Quinoa, sweet potato, apples and hazelnuts are the main components of this unforgettable stuffing recipe. Wait a minute… is that a little maple syrup we’re tasting, too? (via Family Fresh Cooking)

3. Classic Sage Dressing: Holy wow. This gorgeous serving of stuffing is made with rustic white bread and tons of fresh chopped sage. (via The Kitchn)

4. Thanksgiving Stuffing Poppers (Gluten-Free, Vegan): Yeah, we went there. Your guests will gobble these chickpea stuffing poppers and cranberry-jalapeño dipping sauce right up. (via Beard + Bonnet)

14. Slow Cooker Sausage and Apple Stuffing: Cover and cook this sweet-savory stuffing for two to three hours. It’s definitely worth the wait. (via Sweet Treats + More)

15. Cranberry and Sage Stuffing Muffins: More muffins! But this time, we’re bringing you a vegetarian option made with veggie stock and cranberries. (via Cooking Stoned)
