How to Make Turkey Stuffing

While the turkey may be the centerpiece of your holiday feast, sometimes it's upstaged by what's inside the bird--the turkey stuffing, or dressing, as some people prefer to call it. Stuffing has been used for centuries in all types of foods, though it's hard to say for sure when knowing how to make turkey stuffing first became essential to creating a proper Thanksgiving feast. Classic turkey stuffing is made with bread, spices and herbs and stuffed inside the main cavity of the bird, though you can cook it separately in a casserole or baking dish, too.
