Pumpkin Spice Stuffing bites (& a giveaway)



Now that Halloween is over, I'm starting to think about Thanksgiving. 

I don't know about you, but Thanksgiving = FOOD in our family (and lots of it).  
I was recently given the opportunity to create a Thanksgiving veggie side dish 
using Country Crock Pumpkin Spice spread.   
Veggies help complete a well-rounded, better-for-you Thanksgiving meal, 
and Country Crock helps make them even more delicious.
I chose to make stuffing because, at Thanksgiving, stuffing is one of our veggies.
{Let me tell you, I could eat this stuff straight out of the tub!!!}
There are so many different variations of stuffing. 
Every family has their traditional Thanksgiving favorite.
For my side dish, I chose to add a few fun ingredients to simple cornbread stuffing.

Any type of stuffing would work with this recipe.

 I chose store bought for convenience.  
Once the stuffing was mixed with the water and Country Crock Pumpkin Spice spread, I added in a handful of cranberries and almonds.
Now the fun part, use a tablespoon or so of mix to fill a mini muffin pan.  
 I put these into a 350 degree oven until the tops were a little crispy. 
(and so they would hold their shape).
I love how they are the perfect little bites of yumminess!   
The Country Crock Pumpkin Spice spread gives them such a great hint of pumpkin spice.  The flavor works really well with the cranberries and almonds too.
I plan on using the Country Crock Pumpkin Spice spread 
when I make mashed sweet potatoes too :)
A few more great side dishes can be found at The Crock Country Chronicle In The Kitchen.

Now the fun part for you!!
I have a Thanksgiving Kit to giveaway to one of you lucky ducks 
(or should I say turkeys -haha)
the kit includes:

Tell me your all time FAVE Thanksgiving side dish!
A winner will be picked November 10th.

Thank you to Country Crock for being a sponsor. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Those stuffing bites look great! I'll have to add them to my list of side dishes this year. My favorite Thanksgiving side dish is broccoli and cheese. Even if I didn't have any other side dishes, the turkey with the cheese sauce and broccoli makes my Thanksgiving dinner!
