Fat Freddy: "I didn't stuff it- it wasn't empty"
Well, you can make perfeclty good non bird non stovetop stuffing - the herbed dried bread cubes of your choice. I mince up an onion, a stick or two of celery, a large peeled carrot and toss it with the cubes along with chopped walnuts, a tsp of garlic granules and a tsp of poultry seasoning. I melt a stick of butter into a box or two [or equivalent homemade] chicken or turkey broth and toss the dry mix with it and pack it gently into a baking vessel [I like a nice casserole dish, like a COrning French WHite with lid] and bake it in a 350 degree fahrenheit oven for about 45 minutes or so. Comes out nice, like stovetop or whatever off brand stuffing and not that much more work overall, just more time cooking.

I have to admit I prefer it outside the bird for the same reasons.
