Gotta have stuffing! It's just not the same without it. But I usually have enough that I stuff the bird with what will fit and I bake the rest for about the last 30 minutes that the bird is cooking. Then I mix the two together in the serving bowl. Best of both!

I love turkey, particularly the dark meat. As for the leftovers, well, that's what the freezer is for.

I grew up with bread stuffing/dressing. Even though I grew up in Louisiana. Not that big on corn bread stuffing, but it is the thing in the South.

And, here's the solution, at least when I was growing up: we did stuffing in the turkey and also a pan (pie pan I think) out side the turkey, which was great for left overs.

I was once stuck with turkey leftovers when my parents visited at Thanksgiving and have not eaten it since. Ever. Don't even like the taste anymore.

And, since it's just me, a friend and I are going to a Thanksgiving Buffet at a local restaurant. Where I will try many things, but not the turkey.

I love stuffing - it's just not the same outside the bird! I just stuffed and roasted a chicken last weekend - and am boiling the bones for broth as I write this. Yummm!

I prefer the stuffing myself and so does my family. a friend was telling me this year she and heard about and tried...putting cheese cloth in the turkey, then the dressing, so when it's done, just pull the cloth out and out comes all the stuffing. My youngest daughter is doing her first Thanksgiving at her new home this year, so I myself won't be trying this trick, not sure if she will want to or not. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Being from Wisconsin, I also had not heard of dressing until I moved to Tennessee. It's all corn bread dressing here or nothing. I can't even get my wife to try stuffing. Says she won't eat anything that comes out of that end of the bird. What is even worse is that she doesn't use the giblets when she cooks.

I prefer stuffing but will not get any this years since doing a turkey for one is a little bit of over kill. Dressing is not bad and will go well with my tv dinner of turkey and potatoes (Schwans takes care of little old ladies). The cup is half full even if it is not overflowing. :0)

I definitely prefer stuffing, but the rest of my family doesn't like either one, so I usually am stuck with dressing because it's the only way I will get any!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and it's time for the annual debate about stuffing -- in or out of the turkey?

My opinion? It's called "stuffing" for a reason. There's just no match for the taste and texture of stuffing cooked in the turkey. I hear the food safety warnings, but I've cooked almost forty Thanksgiving dinners with no problems. I'm considering putting some metal skewers into the stuffing from the outside to cook to a higher temperature (the old "baked potato" trick).
