So I'm making the stuffing, among other things, for the Thanksgiving dinner I'm attending. (OK, I guess it's technically "dressing", since I'm cooking it outside the turkey.) Usually, I make it with good stale bread. But my husband is southern, and I just heard him and his sister rhapsodizing about their late grandmother's stuffing: made with day old (homemade) biscuits and cornbread.
I am intrigued and want to try this. But I've never tasted it, and I'm worried about the texture. Both biscuits and cornbread are crumbly; neither has the stretchy texture of a yeast bread whose gluten is allowed to develop. Isn't it all going to kind of turn to mush when stock is added? Should I throw in some yeasted bread as well?
Southern mefites, enlighten me!
