(that doesn't come in a box)

I am looking for a really good turkey stuffing recipe. The one I have used the past couple of years is a slow cooker one, while good, isn't my man's favourite. He keeps raving about a potato stuffing he once had and I can't seem to replicate it or find anything even close.

Also, I don't actually stuff it in the bird, I cook it in a separate dish. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

here is one I will try in my crock pot
2 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup diced tart apple, peeled and cored
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoon ground sage
1 teaspoon ground marjoram
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon savory
1/2 teaspoon thyme
12 cups lightly toasted bread, cubes
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken stock or 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock

Directions:

1
In a large fry pan saute onions, celery and apple in butter until onion is just translucent.
2
Stir in sage, marjoram, salt, pepper, savory and thyme.
3
Combine vegetable mixture with the bread cubes and parsley.
4
Toss well.
5
Pour stock over mixture, tossing well.
6
Spoon into your crock-pot.
7
Cover and cook on high for one hour.
8
Reduce to low and continue cooking for 2-3 hours, stirring every hour.
9
As stated for Vegetarians use vegetable stock.

Mmmm that sounds delicious! Stuffing is my favourite part of the meal :D

(Usually, I just buy Stove Top and add extra bread cubes and onions to it :oops:)

I was wondering the same. Doesn't seem like "stuffing" unless it's been stuffed into the turkey to get all the juices and flavor from the meat.

I usually cook mine in the turkey and then take it out of the turkey and put it back in the oven to make sure it's up to temperature (food poisoning phobia :wink: ) and so that the top layer of stuffing gets crispy while the underside stays moist. It also seems to be less, shall we say, "gassy" for some of those who eat it when I crisp it up in the oven, which is a good thing for all those in the room :lol:

I don't put stuffing in the bird either as I have a food poisoning phobia too. I could stuff it and then bake it in the oven as Ariadne does but I am so busy doing other things in prep for the meal that doing that is one extra step that would make the meal prep even busier. Also, sometimes I cook a turkey roast if I'm having a small number of people for dinner so my only option would be a casserole stuffing.

I guess I just haven't had much luck with cooking the stuffing outside the turkey. It never seems to have that same "turkey" flavour or the texture I associate with stuffing - almost like a steamed pudding with crispy bits on top. When I've tried cooking it in a casserole it just comes out like damp bread :(

I also have the problem of their being no room left in the oven while the turkey is in there. If I cook the stuffing inside the turkey it saves space and then while I'm carving the turkey the stuffing gets crisped up in the oven.

I'm tempted to try a comparison this Christmas - do my traditional stuffing inside the turkey and also try a slow cooker version to see what everyone likes better.

Try buying a tube of frozen sausage meat and frying it up with your onions, garlic and celery to add to you homage stuffing.
