Servings: ten to twelve.
Before roasting the turkey, we lay a few bacon strips on the breast, which keeps the meat moist and adds an edge of smoke. Cider and diced pears cook down in the roasting pan to lend a sweet, spicy note to the gravy.

Make Ahead Tips
You can make the cornbread two days ahead and the complete stuffing one day ahead.
This is an awesome Turkey. We now have it almost every year! The wild rice cornbread stuffing is also fantastic. I'm a convert and no longer want anything to do with traditional bread stuffing. My family loves this recipe!
Wonderful recipe, very delicious. I used it last Thanksgiving and will again this Thanksgiving. I did not make the Wild Rice & Cornbread Stuffing though.
