Sourdough Bacon Stuffing is the only thing in this year's Thanksgiving dinner that contained gluten. I made it with fresh sourdough bread, and I had bacon out to make the Fully Loaded Baked Mashed Potatoes
, so I used the leftovers in this recipe.
I never stuff the bird when I use stuffing. There are a lot of factors that lead to that decision. Mostly I don't feel that I get a proper cook out of a roasted bird. There is risk of contamination of the stuffing from uncooked drippings, and most importantly, you don't get loads of crunchy bits, leading to fights among guests and family over the coveted crispy stuffing. Feel free to stuff your turkey, or chicken, or not. But whatever you do, enjoy the stuffing.
