How to Make Stuffing

Stuffing is a side dish commonly associated with turkey and Thanksgiving but it can also be enjoyed throughout the year and with many types of meat.
Today's trend is to cook stuffing separately from turkey, the reason being safety and speed. Stuffing must reach a temperature of 165º F to kill harmful bacteria. By the time enough heat has reached the stuffing to render it safe, the turkey can be overcooked.
Stuffing can be used in crown roasts, extra thick chops or steaks, rolled roasts or rolled into flattened tenderloin. The stuffing can be made from a simple bread base or a wild rice mixture, with ingredients such as onions, garlic, lemon, herbs, and spices added for extra flavor.
Stuffing can be made from many different ingredients, such as simple herbs, vegetables and fruit, but can also be made from more complex bread based or grain based (grains, such as rice, barley and kasha that are cooked until tender) recipes.
A milk-based soup referred to as a stew that is basically a broth with cooked oysters. Very light in texture, Oyster Stew typically contains butter, water, milk, and cooked oysters combined with seasonings.
