Apricot Turkey Stuffing

Enought to stuff a very big bird Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 60 minutes   Rated:

When I lived in the USA I learnt to have a whole new appreciation for the art of stuffing. Yes, stuffing. I found it quite therapeutic to create a stuffing on the day of Thanksgiving, or Christmas for said turkey. It is about nuts, fruit, spices, stock, deep rich meaty flavours and most of all about cooking it before it gets inside the bird...and if it cannot fit inside the bird, you cook it like a casserole and eat it as a side dish. YES please. So delicious. So much a part of Christmas for me now, that I always, always make my own stuffing. If you wish to go gluten free, this is very easy, you can replace fresh bread crumbs with either cooked brown rice or quinoa. So go for it. Let your creative stuffing chef shine this year. Merry Christmix!
