A simple turkey stuffing recipe is the "Easy Turkey Stuffing" recipe provided by BettyCrocker.com. The recipe calls for one medium onion, two stalks of celery, two medium carrots, 8 cups of dry bread cubes, 2 tablespoons each of parsley and poultry seasonings, and 1/2 cup of chicken broth.
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery and carrots to the butter and stir the ingredients together. Cook the vegetables until they are relatively tender. In a separate bowl combine the bread cubes, chopped parsley and poultry seasonings. Sprinkle the ingredients with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper.
Pour the chicken broth into the bowl and add the vegetables. Stir the ingredients together. The recipe makes enough stuffing to fill a 14 to 18-pound turkey. Stuff the body cavity of the turkey with stuffing. Do not overstuff the turkey. Place any leftover stuffing in a shallow casserole dish.
The stuffing in the turkey needs to reach a temperature of 165 degrees before it is safe to eat. The stuffing in the baking dish should be cooked for the last 30 to 45 minutes of the turkey's roasting time.
