Kimpossible 5 years Yep and it's never come out greasy or gelatiny, nor is it ever undercooked. And I agree with doogirl, that turkey in the picture does not look appetizing at all.

Always is gone before the dressing. NurseKimberly 5 years No Spectra 5 years Nope; we cook the stuffing separately so that the top gets nice and crispy. If you cook it in the bird it stays too wet. doogirl 5 years My family has never done the stuffing inside the bird, neither have my in-laws. But I bet it would be delicious! I bought myself a turkey and I may have to try stuffing it! BTW, why would you use a picture of a burned turkey for this thread? betty-kraker 5 years it freaks me out but i have never made a turkey but i have a chicken and its always over done i made everyone sick over chicken one time 5 years Not after seeing Alton Brown's turkey special where the turkey was cooked and the stuffing was not. Yuck. suziryder 5 years I've never cooked a turkey myself, but my mom always cooks her turkeys with her homemade stuffing inside. The turkey always tastes great and the stuffing is always savory and delicious, never greasy! Or gelatiny. bluebellknoll 5 years We also cook the stuffing in the bird and separately however once it's all done we mix them together. It makes the perfect texture. :) Soniabonya 5 years Happsmjc----Same here! We cook the sutffing in the bird and separately. Everyone battles for the stuffing in the bird. We slow cook our turkey and the stuffing comes out moist and rich with flavors of the turkey and the top of it crisps wondefully. I'm drooling just anticipating it . . . Happsmjc 5 years MMMM you betcha! (Have to disagree!) We stuff ours and also make some separately. Everyone always prefers the stuffing from inside the bird and in the pan with the turkey, so moist and yummy! Ours usually isn't greasy and we always cook our Turkey slowly so the time thing isn't an issue. Happsmjc 5 years MMMM you betcha! (Have to disagree!) We stuff ours and also make some separately.

I usually put carrots, onion, celery and orange halves inside the turkey. Stuffing is made separately. eshellmoyer 5 years it makes the bird take soooo much longer to cook and the stuffing comes out all gelatin-y. pass. Leilanic1 5 years i grosses me out. i have to make my stuffing separately. the only thing ive put inside the bird is onions and lemon.
