To stuff or not to stuff? Cooking the turkey sans stuffing not only helps the bird cook faster, but also allows those who don’t eat meat to enjoy some stuffing too. Either way, this recipe makes a lot! You’ll probably have enough to stuff a small turkey, if you like, and bake on the side. To save time, the day before the feast, pack the stuffing into a baking dish but don’t add the broth. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Tip: Much ado about stuffing
Keep the crusts on the bread—this adds great texture to this Cran-Apple Stuffing. Also, mix the stuffing in a roasting pan. The pan’s roomy shape makes mixing easier, and you’ll need one for the turkey anyway!
