Have you found that you having multiple similar recipes in a hub helps with the number of views and likelihood of linking from other sources?
Or does the extra information confuse people?
I do a lot of recipies with variations because a lot of dishes are done with different twists.
I eat some meat, but that does not mean that the vegetarians can't enjoy many of the same dishes without the meat.
Otherwise, it doesn't make sense to do multiple and different recipes when each one can be a new hub.
I think it's better to go with one recipe per hub.
Why? Well more traffic for one thing!
If you have a hub titled "Ten Turkey Recipes" then that's just one main keyword. However if you have a hub for each, such as "Stuffed Tofu Turkey", "Turkey with rice" etc, you can get ranked for ten times as many keywords, giving ten times as much chance of getting traffic.
If you have trouble filling up the word count, consider adding things like where you got the recipe or its history, variations on it, etc
One recipe per Hub can make for some very thin and unproductive content.
True. There are some pretty badly written ones out there.
However it's possible to make a hub about one recipe and make it quite in depth. There are so many different parts of a recipe that can be talked about, especially if the ingredients aren't that common or there is a story attached to the recipe.
I think it depends...you can do one per hub if you have a main entree, appetizer or dessert with a story, technique etc....I only do multiples if a recipe is short or they can be combined, for example, Dessert Toppings, Glazes and Sauces etc...
Here's a fairly new hub from Patty Inglish, as an example.

I don't know if this has been covered; I did a quick look, but didn't find anything. I think it would be useful to allow us to include more than one 'ingredient' and 'instructions' capsules. I just started...

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp...
