Let’s talk stuffing.
Stuffing your bird presents a lively union, a fusion of Thanksgiving’s most celebrated dishes: turkey and stuffing. On top of the dynamic taste, stuffing the turkey saves oven space. Why waste precious oven real estate by preparing each dish individually? Go for the gusto, make off with the kitchen and the sink.
On the contrary, baking the stuffing in the bird greatly increases the risk of a kitchen catastrophe. If done incorrectly, stuffing can become your biggest adversary—mushy and undercooked, the bready disaster might just send your guests (and you) to bed earlier than expected. Taint my turkey? I don’t think so.
Will you be stuffing your bird this holiday season or cooking the stuffing separately?
