I thought I had lost this recipe, found it on line, and am posting it here for safe-keeping. It's originally from a 2001 Bon Appetit and it's a delicious alternative to the usual turkey dressing. See my Buttermilk Cornbread for Buttermilk Cornbread to make this dressing.I plan on making it this year for my stepson's girlfriend who doesn't eat red meat or pork.
