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!

Serve up a medley of textures and tastes with this colorful luncheon idea from our Test Kitchen. Crunchy celery, pepper and pecans combine with juicy grapes and dried cherries, wild rice and leftover turkey in this easy standout salad. You can substitute instant brown rice for the wild rice.
This moist dressing is perfect when paired with poultry or even pork. The sweet-tart flavor of the dried cranberries really complements the dish's turkey sausage. —Corinne Portteus, Albuquerque, New Mexico

“Everyone loves this recipe for Fabulous Taco Salad,” writes Anna Yeatts of Pinehurst, North Carolina. “It’s like eating decadent Mexican food while keeping the calories under control.” Serve it with Anna's Fresh Salsa or your favorite premade variety from the grocery store!
This chunky soup from Katherine Preiss of Penfield, Pennsylvania is full of flavor...and zip! “If you don’t want as much heat, you can eliminate the jalapeno pepper,” she notes. “To make it vegetarian, I omit the turkey and add a small can of garbanzo beans in the last few minutes of cooking.”
Complement your bird with this savory stuffing from June Kathrein of Delta, Colorado. “I’ve made this recipe for many potlucks and church suppers, and everyone raves about it...even those who usually don’t like stuffing,” says June.
