Do you stuff your bird?

Recently it's been warned that stuffing shouldn't be placed inside the bird, but only cooked and served on the side (dressing - technically). Do you stuff your bird anyway, or keep it on the side only?

  • I've always stuffed it, no one has ever become ill (and this is my 21st year hosting Thanksgiving)

    (A lot of that research shows that the reason it's dangerous is because proper cooking procedures haven't been followed - the bird is stuffed too tightly to cook properly, the stuffing was kept at room temperature before cooking, etc.)

  • nope. We make a pan dressing and fill out turkey with oranges, garlic, thyme and rosemary

  • Use to, but now we only buy Turkey breast... stuffing gets made in a separate dish...

  • I stuff mine with lemons, oranges, fresh herbs, cinammon sticks, and other aromatics.

  • I never have because it makes the stuffing too dry...I cook it separately.
