Three days left and it's time to settle on a menu. Sure, you could break out the recipe for grandma's cornbread stuffing that you've been shoving down your gob since you could handle solid food, but before you do, take a step back: just because it's traditional doesn't mean it's good.
If you want to amp your Thanksgiving side dishes -- and maybe establish some new traditions of your own -- after the break are a selection of alternative stuffing recipes that are bound to be better (or at least more interesting) than the soggy stuffing of your forebears. And for God's sake, don't actually stuff your turkey with it until you read this.
