The Elements of Stuffing

For many stuffing fans, the only reason for the turkey at Thanksgiving is to hold the stuffing.
Be creative with what you put intoyour stuffing -- you won't bedisappointed.

Stuffing, or dressing as it is also called, requires these elements:

  • a starch, such as bread, corn bread, rice, or potatoes
  • a liquid, such as broth, wine, or liquor (or a combination of these)
  • other additions that can include herbs
  • onions
  • dried or fresh fruits
  • sausage or other meats
  • or seafood, such as oysters, crab, or shrimp.

If you want to create your own recipe, keep these proportions in mind:

  • For every 1 cup of bread or other starch, you will need about 2 tablespoons of liquid, just enough to moisten the bread.
  • For each pound of uncooked poultry, you will need about 3/4 cup stuffing.
  • If you just want stuffing, there's no requirement for a bird.
