There is nothing more Wisconsin than a beer battered fish fry. I am the authority on the situation, after all. I’ve eaten my fair share of fish fry in my 27 years. And I’ve made many batches too.

Finally, I’ve nailed it. The perfect beer battered fish fry recipe. It took awhile, but I’ve figured out that, as with most Midwestern recipes, less is more.

Cornbread Stuffing (& a Turkey Day Recipe Round-Up!)

Sides may be the most important part of a meal for me. They can make or break the main course. Elevating and uplifting it or dragging it down to the bottomless depths.

Cornbread Stuffing Recipe

Luckily, this cornbread stuffing does the former.

It will complement the savory bird at the center of the table, being sturdy enough to stand in the place of a traditional stuffing. Or, it will delightfully contrast a tart cranberry sauce, adding just a hint of sweetness from a generous amount of cornbread. It’s enough of a departure to feel adventurous, but not so outlandish that your guests are unwilling to try it.
