Buzz Feed has done us all a favor, just in time for Thanksgiving.
If you’re like the rest of us, you’re getting ready to give thanks next Thursday with an array of dishes, recipes, and culinary creations. And if you’re anything like most of us, it’s the stuffing that will really take center stage, the stuffing that will (hopefully) get the most compliments, and the stuffing whose preparation has the potential to be the most stressful aspect of the dinner.
LUCKILY, Buzz Feed has amassed a collection of celebrity stuffing recipes, and ranked them all for our benefit. Borrowing stuffing dishes from Martha Stewart, Gordon Ramsay, Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri, and Gweneth Paltrow, Buzz Feed gives us the lowdown on preparation, the steps to complete the dish, and an overall impression of the quality of the recipe.
So how did they perform?
Well, surprisingly, Gordon Ramsay’s dish came in last place, resulting in the admonition from Buzz Feed, “…it was literally just a pan of buttery breadcrumbs!” It earned only a single loaf-of-bread-icon, the scoring system of choice for Buzz Feed, which is a bit of an embarrassing showing on behalf of the UK. Even more surprisingly, Gweneth Paltrow’s vegetarian recipe was NOT a bomb, earning four loaf-of-bread-icons and the shock of meat-eaters around the globe.
The winner, however, hands down, was Bobby Flay’s hot Italian sausage stuffing, the most flavorful of the lot and the winner of a perfect score with FIVE loaf-of-bread icons. It seems like, in this contest, just like life, Bobby Flay is near impossible to beat.
Check out Buzz Feed’s article, including a complete list of the ranked dishes and all of the celebrities’ recipes. You’ll be nothing if not prepared for next week’s holiday, whether your taste is vegetarian, down home, or classic!
