Stuffing Tips:

Stuffing should be prepared and stuffed into the turkey immediately before the turkey is placed in the oven for roasting.

Turkeys should be stuffed loosely, with about 3/4 cup of stuffing per lb. of turkey.

When making stuffing ahead of time, wet and dry ingredients should be refrigerated separately and combined right before stuffing the turkey.
