Hot Dog Stuffing

My stepmother was Mexican, and one Thanksgiving her sister-in-law Carmen made the stuffing. And probably the turkey as well, though I’m not sure. The stuffing was memorable in all the wrong ways…

…Because Carmen made the stuffing with hot dogs. To say it clashed with the turkey is the understatement of the century. Now there are legitimate stuffing recipes made with sausage. So I’ll never know if Carmen thought hot dogs were more or less the same thing or what. But I laugh about that Thanksgiving to this day.

So Happy Thanksgiving! No hot dogs in the stuffing, O.K.?
