EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Instead of cooking the stuffing in the slow cooker, use this recipe to stuff any 12- to 14-pound bird. After making the stuffing mixture, stuff and bake turkey as directed in the turkey recipe. The center of the stuffing must reach 165°F.

To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
