Absolutely the Best Stuffing... Ever!

20 mins (prep 20)

I have numerous friends who now use this recipe for their own Turkey during the holidays. This recipe is for a 10-12 Lb turkey. It also will stuff 2-3 chickens so you don't have to wait till Thanksgiving. This Murray family recipe is hands down the best stuffing... EVER! ...NOTE: this is a stuffing, not a dressing and does not work if cooked along side the bird in the oven. Oh, and no seasonings are needed. ;) Also, for those worried about cross-contamination....... I've had folks say "they won't eat anything that was in a raw bird"..... but . isn't . the . bird . 'raw' . too, until you cook it? Live and let live. Enjoy!
