Asked in Stuffing (food)
Do you have to cook the stuffing first?
This would depend on what kind of stuffing you are making, whether or not it is the instant stuffing (IE: Stovetop) or homemade. It also depends on whether or not you plan on making it separately, or stuffing the turkey with it. If you are using an instant stuffing, it is wise to make it last, as it only takes approximately 5 minutes to prepare. If you are making homemade stuffing, it is wise to prepare your bread crumbs in advance, so they have time to harden. If you are stuffing a turkey, prepare the stuffing mix prior to stuffing the turkey, then place it in the turkey's cavity. Please be advised that special precautions should be taken when doing this, as a turkey that has been stuffed, when improperly or incompletely cooked, can give additional rise to food borne illnesses.
Do you cover stuffing when cooking?
It is important to cover stuffing (dressing) while cooking it. One of the important ingredients to a good stuffing is water, and therefore, it can dehydrate making for a dry stuffing. If cooking stuffing, whether in a container by itself or inside a turkey, cover with aluminum foil. Also, if cooking the stuffing inside the turkey, be sure to baste the stuffing exposed while basting the turkey.
