How to Cook Turkey Stuffing: National Stuffing Day

The 4th Thursday of November is National Stuffing Day!

poultrystuffingA day to itself for stuffing? Well, it’s so mouth-watering that I don’t begrudge giving it a day of its own.

We enjoy stuffing so much at our house, that not only do we stuff our poultry, but we even make extra in a casserole to enjoy it for a couple days.

My Mother-in-law made wonderful dressing, albeit different from mine, but she would bring us the most delicious rye bread with Stuffing Sandwiches. Her dressing had a more cohesive quality & she could slice it. So, between 2 slices of fresh rye bread, she would enclose the stuffing. It was the best. I wish she had given me her recipe!

How to Cook Turkey Stuffing:

My stuffing fills a 15 lb turkey, and a small casserole dish.

Type: Side Dish Recipe

Serve with: poultry
Prep Time: 12 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Yield: for stuffing a 15 lb bird + a small casserole dish



  1. In a large sauté pan, melt butter. On medium heat, sauté onions on medium heat.
  2. When translucent, add in celery, poultry seasoning, gumbo file, cayenne, sage leaves, parsley & pepper, to taste.
  3. When heated through, sprinkle on top bread crumbs & stale bread. Stir through well.
  4. Remove stuffing from heat & allow it to cool slightly, so you can handle it.
  5. How to Stuff a Turkey - cookingwithkimberly.comUsing your hands, or a spoon, place stuffing, loosely packed, inside of the turkey cavity. * Tip: You can also stuff the small cavity near the neck, if necessary.
  6. Cut an apple in half, and remove just the seeds. Plug the opening of the cavity where you stuffed the bird, sealing it inside.
  7. Roast your bird until it’s reached the appropriate internal temperature.

Serve alongside the roasted turkey, and provide lots of mushroom gravy to enjoy it with.

National Stuffing Day is a great day, isn’t it?!
