    Geeze, I'm probably the worst one here to ask. We don't stuff the bird anymore, just cook the dressing separately.

    Stuffing goes in the bird before it goes in the oven. You do have to do a little cooking to get the stuffing ready (onion, celery, etc) depending on what kind of stuffing you've got.

    You mean like Stove Top Stuffing? [​IMG] I've never tried that kind. Probably don't add anything. What does the box say?

    It's delicious! Add hot turkey drippings (or water) and stir stir stir!

    [​IMG] yes, stove top . says mix it in some butter and boiling water. I think I can handle that but it dont say when to put it up the turkeys butt.. I sure hope that thing has directions. Like how long to cook it. dont they have insides in them too ?

    Most of the time, the turkey has a neck, gizzard, and liver tucked inside. Cook those up for the animals or make broth for gravy.

    I don't think you need to put stove top inside the bird for it to be good. If you do, it goes in before you start cooking. Cooking time for turkey is by weight. So many minutes per pound. I'd have to look it up.
