Try making Rhubarb-dressing and you'll find it goes well with any meats, not just turkey and chicken. Add this stuffing to any meats at anytime. It doesn't have to be a holiday!
Do you dare to change your regular dressing for one made with rhubarb? Does everyone expect the same kind of dressing all the time? They do at my house.
We are quite accustomed to the "same-old" I have to admit. But it is good. No doubt about it. A little frightening I know to experiment sometimes especially during any holidays and especially when serving a crowd.
Rhubarb-dressing is excellent with a lot of meat dishes. You can use it with ham, in a turkey of course, and as a stuffing for chicken.
Why not experiment with a roast of pork? Your family may be quite happy to trade the "same-old" for a new rhubarb-dressing recipe and find it a very pleasant change.
