Those surgeons deserve the Turkey Nobel Prize.

But, the best part of the stuffing is that which comes out and creates a crusty surface!

Turkey - no good. Kentucky is best.

I thought best practice was to cook/bake the stuffing/dressing separately, to avoid uneven cooking and bacterial contamination.

We're eating Turkey tonight actually! Thanks for the info, very interesting. But I like to have the stuffing unstapled. Purely because when stuffing starts to come out you know that it's cooked properly. There is nothing worse than a cooked turkey with uncooked stuffing. and I agree with MaboDofulsSpicy -The best stuffing is the one that comes out.

Tend to avoid bird for Xmas day, too dry and fussy. A good ol' joint is good enough.

No!

You want all the turkey or big chicken juices to blend with the stuffing.. I am a pro chef. Believe. I just bought a new knife today for ¥30,000

Jack, 1987, you mujst have eaten it already! How was it?

I BBQ my big chicken on a Weber grill on my 30 Meter Squared Roof Garden here in Japan...it was damn good.

Cannot get stuffing here so buy croutons and Italian spices. I rock in the kitchen....

i bought a turkey from the commissary and cooked it. Turned out perfeclty. The key is to cook the stuffing sepeartley. FOr those who don't have an oven, try cooking the turkey in a slow cooker for about 8 hours. Then when you take it out, leave he juices and add stuffing mix. Just stir and then you will have the best stuffing with some pieces of turkey in it with the flavor of the cooked turkey.

I'm all turkey'd out after Thanksgiving here. I'd rather have a christmas goose/chicken/duck or even a cornish hen. Anyways, at least its better to try and tie up the birds end or staple it after stuffing with the skin unless of course you decide to leave it empty.

It's okay, but its not very juicy unless you deep fry it in peanut oil.

But turkey is not suitable to Japanese taste. My family had our bucket of Kentucky, much better than turkey! I like how Japan can take an American traditional food and level it up to suit the more refined Japanese taste.

Oh yes, a "bucket of Kentucky"... so much more refined than a roast turkey. What was dessert? A strawberry and cream sandwich from the 7-11?

Turkey itself is just too dry and not tasty. To me, it's always best in either a nice sandwich, or in turkey chowder.

I had to laugh at this article. Cooking turkey or chicken is so much simpler if you cut it up into pieces first, for those buying whole birds, which I don't, I usually buy chicken leg meat or chicken legs with the bone.

As far as stuffing, cripes, I have two words - Stove-Top Stuffing! Easy & delicious!

Don't forget the whole berry cranberry sauce.
