My Mom didn't have a lot of spices but she always had thyme & cin. namon.Her stuffing was delicious. I never could make it like her..

I'm confused. How was this "stuffing a turkey"? Stuffing a turkey means placing prepared dressing inside the bird cavity. Not placing raw veggies and herbs inside the bird cavity.

Pretty pale turkey. No golden color missing

I have been cooking my traditional family stuffing outside of the bird for years.....this was a helpful video to show that you can add other flavors inside the bird and it will help flavor ....perhaps, pepperoni would keep the bird moist! Discard everything when the bird is done but now you have more flavor and some moistening going on!

Great video. I do wish it was using cornbread stuffing though. Thanks Paula.

Thank you. I have needed this step-by-step for years. I won' t be buying pre-cooked turkeys anymore. Thanks again, you are my hero.

This was a waste of my time. It said how to stuff a turkey, all you did was season it and there is more information than that on the turkey package. I get the magazine even have a lot of her cook ware and I can not believe you would miss lead people with this.

Paula, Can you repost the carnberry sauce. I started watching it and forgot to write down the ingredients and clicked off to go back to the start and I lost it some how. I never could find it. I would like to make this for our christmas dinner. Thank you Filomena Grasse

I found a great way to do my stuffing this year. I made it like I always do except I cooked it in my crock pot. It stayed moist and it left room in the oven. We did a deep fried turkey.

Well, if this was supposed to be for stuffing a turkey, it was an EPIC fail. There was no stuffing or dressing or what not involved, just a few aromatics placed into the cavity. I expected so much more . . . VERY disappointed.
