Chris and Rick Try to Make the Perfect Stuffing | Making Perfect: Thanksgiving Ep 3 | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 30 October 2019
  • On Thanksgiving, what's better than stuffing? Nothing. Nothing is better than stuffing. It's the best. But what if it was truly perfected? We believe that perfect stuffing could lead to world peace. That's why on this episode of Making Perfect, our very own Chris Morocco and Rick Martinez are taking up the noble task of perfecting it. And isn't that really the spirit of Thanksgiving?

      Bon Appétit I LOVED seeing Rick’s cornbread variation!! My family always makes a similar recipe every Thanksgiving and it brought me a lot of joy to see that represented on your channel, instead of the boring, basic vanilla recipe other channels always show year after year, as if every American family makes their dressing the same.

        They should've just made Rick's dad stuffing and be done, cause the more they worked it the less sense it made tbh

                    To me, stuffing is bread and vegetables. I don’t need the sausage because of the turkey and I don’t need the corn. This is so over complicated like the mashed potatoes!

                      The Mexican style stuffing is what my mom does with hers. I think minorities have much different take on traditional American foods that is very underrepresented.

                      AND thank God you didn't take the seeds out of the jalepeño. That defeats the purpose.

                              The rice stuffing actually came out great, the thing with stuffing is that no one ever likes it and people just eat it because it’s there. My family actually loved it

                                  Hate to burst the happy BA bubble but how exactly did Chris help create this recipe? It was ALL Rick's doing... Chris just said no all the time and complained about how hot things were 🙄 Rick convinced him at the end to make it a corn bread stuffing and add all the fun bits to it. Also Chris palate is all talk no game 😮 Look back on the cheese and ham taste test vids...

Mixed together with onion and Turkey drippings until it's like a sludge and bake until golden and firm. Nothing fancy, everything a day old, no sausage or sage. Soooooo delicious 😊😊😊

I really just wished this whole Thanksgiving series was a little more classic. This stuff they've made in almost every episode is not what Thanksgiving is about for most people. It's supposed to be comfort food, not pushing the boundaries of what a dish is supposed to be. I really appreciate what they tried to do here, but I have absolutely no interest in doing any of these recipes I've seen. If you really disagree, that's ok BUT HAVE YOU SEEN THE SIDES EPISODE?? lol

It wasn't clear what the differences were between each stuffing they tried or how they got there. I would have expected trying different herbs, not different corn flavor enhancers... especially since they chose cornbread as the bread. I just felt Chris being worried and then giving up and making fried rice. This was tense and unpleasant.
