    Thank you for the reminder! I wing this every year, and yes it works wonderfully in the bird JTroie. I personally use it outside if it is a family dinner due to my families finickiness. I love to use the drippings from the turkey for the liquids, but often use just a little due to it being very salty and follow with unsalted broth or a good dry red wine for the remainder. I love fresh sage and basil (finely chopped) for this but a good sprinkling of poultry seasoning is all that's nec along with some pepper. Taste as you go.... I like toasted almond quarters and a half teaspoon of orange zest as well. Using your hands is indeed the best way to mix this, but don't smash or mush. Place your hands on the outer edges of the bowl, follow it down to the bottom and lift with your fingers separated...repeat several times. Always a hit with guests!

    Has anyone ever tried this in the turkey as well? Is this even a possibility? Would love to try.

    Sounds great! I'm not really a sage person either, so if I try it I will go very lightly with the sage!

    This recipe makes me want to do cartwheels! I LOVE it! I thought mine was good (I add cranberries also) until I saw this! I love the apples! The whole thing sounds sensational. I'm making this for Thanksgiving. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thank you Marky!

    If I were to ever venture past my mother's stuffing recipe for Thanksgiving, I think this one would be great to try. I'll save it to try next time I do a roasted stuffed chicken :-)

    Marky! You are like psychic! I was just thinking last night about adding cranberries to my usual stuffing (bread, cornbread, sausage, apple, spices, etc.) and here it is! Don't need to wing it because you've read my mind. Thanks, hon.
