My mom alway stuffed it and we never had any issues with food poisoning. And I have to say, she is very lax about that kind of stuff.
I actually don't like the stuffing from inside the turkey, and since Thanksgiving is at my house and I cook the turkey, I realllly don't want to stuff it. But last year when I mentioned it my sister had a freak out - apparently she just really loves the stuffing from inside the turkey. We bake stuffing on the side and it is never dry - I mix it with eggs and milk and baste it with turkey drippings along the way. Yummy!
But Alton Brown (among others) bring up the point that a stuffed turkey has to be cooked longer, which can dry out the turkey meat.
|I'm torn about what to do. I don't want to stuff it, but I don't want to deal with a hissy fit by my sister on Thanksgiving about how we don't care about her or her preferences, blah blah blah.|
Oh, the stuffing recipe I use is an Apple Onion Stuffin' (Muffin) recipe from Rachael Ray. I may not be fond of her, but the recipe is great. And I'm lazy and just throw it all into a 13x9x2" baking dish rather than muffins, turns out great - even reheated it's not dry that I remember, and if it did, just sprinkle on some chicken stock until rehydrated again - easy peasy. Goes well with the fresh cider and apple pie and whatnot, too.
