Corn Stuffing Balls

If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional stuffing, these Corn Stuffing Balls are for you!
CORN STUFFING BALLS
Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away. I’m not stressed at all this year about the meal. I’m hosting and I’ve definitely had my oops moments in the past (hello gummy mashed potatoes and rock hard gravy).
All those are learning curves along the way and I’m sure I’ll learn something this year the hard way, but that’s life.
One of the traditions my friend Claire introduced us to last year was pie in the park. Basically after you’ve eaten your Thanksgiving meal, all of our friends meet in the park and share pies.
We had over 20 pies last year and it was so nice to taste a little bit of everything or four versions of an apple pie.
The only part that I guess is a little strange is that it’s like hey I don’t value our friendship enough to have the actual dinner with you but let’s meet up for dessert?
That could be the overthinker in me talking.
This is halfway in between homemade and out of the box, hence the theme of this blog.
While I don’t think these Corn Stuffing Balls are best for a crowd, they definitely would be perfect for a smaller group. Little individual servings of stuffing, I mean how cute is that?
I can’t tell you how good my house smelled after making these!
