Thanksgiving Stuffing

Every corner of the country stakes its claim on regional styles of Thanksgiving stuffing. They’re all casseroles of comfort. Bread stuffing, also known as dressing, starts with savory, sturdy loaves or crumbly cornbread and ends in the oven chock full of aromatic additions. Baked alone, it develops crisp tops; as Thanksgiving stuffing in the turkey, it soaks up rich juices.

recipe

Follow the recipe for roast turkey to cook the stuffing in the turkey cavity, or bake it separately as directed below. If you prefer to avoid peeling the chestnuts yourself, buy ones that have been cooked and peeled and are sold in jars or cans. You will need 1 1/4 cups.
