    Okay, mum and my sis are in town this Christmas, and I'm the turkey person. Okay, now I can cook a mean bird, but stuffing? Seriously, I don't have a clue. No clue at all. Any turkey stuffing suggestions? With detailed directions? Would be much appreciated.

    Here's my mean bird thing: While prepping, poke little holes into the turkey, especially the poutrine, and insert small pieces of garlic and butter deep in there, so that when it bastes, it totally marinates with buttery-garlic juices. But don't use garlic-butter, only butter and garlic. And you can use spices like basil or rosemary if you want too. So, I know how to do the bird, but the stuffing? Need help. Thanks.

    I get a loaf of white bread, cut each slice into cubes, and the rest is as posted above. Season as you see fit.

    Thanx Jesux, that's what I was looking for. Yes, it's in the traditional sense. Still open to other Mom's secret recipes though.

    they have these cheesecloth like bags that you use to stuff turkeys with, so that you don't have a mess of a time trying to get all the stuffing out when you're done cooking. they really help. take a look at your local grocers.

    f the cheesecloth idea, dude.

    getting all the juices and goo in the stuffing and vice versa is what makes it so great.

    oh, and you can try switching the lemon for orange in the recipe i posted.

    I used Jesux' recipe last night with great success..with the following changes:

    I made a roast organic capon.

    used the stuffing recipe as follows:

    (1/2 stick) unsalted butter (some random amount of butter)
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    3 celery stalks, diced (no celery, car wouldn't start)
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 bag garlic croutons (used half a baguette)
    1 1/2 tablespoons sage (key!)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1/2 teaspoon thyme
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning (used italian seasoning, couldn't find my poultry seasoning)
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 cup chicken stock or canned broth (used vegetable broth (oxo cube in water))
    3/4 cup cranberries, chopped finely (didn't have)
    2 tbsp lemon rind, finely ground (used a lime)
    1 cup long grain wild rice (cooked) (used 1/2 cup of leftover sushi rice)

    I stuffed the bird, and also filled a 9x9 square pan with stuffing for vegetarian friends.

    The stuffing in the bird was 1000x better, but thats a given.

    Great recipe, and quite apropos.

    No, the chicken goes in the duck.

    And the duck goes in the turkey.

    And the turkey goes in my tummy.

    If the duck went in the chicken, then it would be called a turchickuck and that really doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Yup. Damn good recipe. I'll be having it for the next 5 evenings too. Thanx JESuX.
    I guess it's mine now too, though, since I ain't got no other.
    and garlic shot back with Brandy. Very nice. :)

    Yup, I'm going with this recipe again this year.

    Though it's weird to think that, this time last year, I thought you were a guy.;)
