There’s an ongoing debate in my family over stuffing, or dressing if you like. It goes like this: Grandma filled her holiday Turkey with traditional giblet stuffing, cooking the resulting glutinous goo inside the cavity of the roasting bird. That’s the way it’s done. I’ve opted in recent years for a lighter, hybrid recipe that I’ve adapted using cornbread and toasted regular bread cooked aside the bird. I find it better tasting and less fat-laden. And I can change it up depending on my mood and menu each Thanksgiving.
