For our Thanksgiving dinner, this moist golden-brown stuffed turkey is a treasured tradition. My grandmother used this recipe...and now my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren enjoy turkey with us in the same savory way!

Mouthwatering flavors of autumn permeate this lovely stuffing concocted by our Test Kitchen home economists. Apple bits and plump raisins add fruity flavor to the brown rice.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"A lovely dish for guests, this spinach-stuffed turkey breast look s beautiful when you slice it for serving," Shirley Goehring writes from Lodi, California. "I've also spooned the filling into a pocket slit in a boneless center-cut pork roast with delicious results."
Doris Russell of Fallston, Maryland offers the convenient option of baking just the turkey breast. Prepared with herbs and crisp-tender vegetables, no one will miss the rest of the bird. “It’s a breeze to prepare,” says Doris. “Plus, it allows you to spend more precious time with your family.”
This moist stuffing, with its fruity blend of raisins and tart cherries, is a sweet twist on a traditional version. It's a tasty complement to tender poultry slices. Be prepared to dish up second helpings when you serve this bird.
Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before!
My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.
Marinating this turkey breast overnight gives it great flavor and a juicy tenderness. "This is the best turkey you will ever eat," assures Marvin Hayes from Delano, Minnesota. Leftovers-if there are any-taste terrific in the two delicious dishes that follow.
When I first fixed this, we were living on a ranch along a river with lots of game. Wild turkey can be dry, but not prepared this way! Of course, it's just as tasty with store-bought turkey. And the gravy it makes is out of this world.
