Can I have your advice?

On one hand, I think the slow-cooker stuffing has its merits. But then there is the other recipe with the stuffing in the bird AND I could ensure that the turkey doesn't get dried out.

Which one would you use?

Recipe Number 1

Slow Cooker Cornbread Dressing

Great for Thanksgiving


2 boxes Jiffy Cornbread mix
8 slices day-old bread
4 eggs
1 chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. sage or poultry seasoning
1/2-3/4 cup butter or margarine


Large mixing bowl, slow cooker


Prepare crornbread according to package instructions.
Crumble cornbread and bread together.
In large bowl combine all ingredients except butter and spoon into 6 qt greased (Pam works fine) slow cooker, or 2 smaller cookers. Dot top with butter
Cover. Cook on high 2-4 hours or on low 2-8 hours

Recipe #2

10-12 lb. baking turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn
Salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. Listen for the popping sounds.

When the turkey's ass blows the oven door open and the turkey flies across the room, it is done.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! If you made it all the way to the bottom - Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful time with your family this holiday. Here is southeast Connecticut, our cup is overflowing with gratitude!

Cooking is not one of my current skills, but I've watch my mother make stuffing for years. She makes her own, with bread, and lots of butter and veggies and stuff...but she has always cooked it inside the turkey. It's my favorite part of the meal. When she makes stuffing other times, she cooks it alone, and I don't think it's as good. My vote would go for stuffing the bird.

I, obviously did not read all the way through.
I would still stuff it just to see the turkey's ass blow the oven door open.

Stuffing the bird increases the time needed to cook the bird.

Put an apple or two inside the turkey to keep it moist, if you don't stuff it.

The flavor of the stuffing should not be dramatically different either way. You can always baste the stuffing with drippings.

Brown the bird to seal in the moisture at a higher heat, then reduce the heat to cook. This will help keep things moist.

I'm not a tradional sort of person. One year I have turkey and the next year ham. This year is ham.

Make it outside the turkey-otherwise, it's too greasy.
