To stuff a turkey, I put a plastic sandwich bag over my hand so I can "grab" the stuffing and insert it into the bird. It makes the job go faster and eliminates messy cleanup. —Pat Williams, Kanab, Utah
If you're looking for a new twist on turkey, Ruby Bergschneider's recipe may just be the one. The Jacksonville, Illinois cook prepares a well-blended, salt-free rub that goes under the turkey skin. She removes the skin before eating, resulting in a low-fat entree. This recipe proves that you don't need a lot of salt for good flavor.
Complementing your golden bird, the well-seasoned bread stuffing is sparked by a festive sweetness from apples and raisins. It's a staple on our holiday menu. —Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
When our family gathers for Christmas dinner, we'll carve a succulent turkey and savor the stuffing my mother taught me to make. Her version of the Southern favorite gets color and zip from the olives and chilies.
