Stuffing - cooking methods?

Has anyone ever baked stuffing in their Nesco/Rival. If so how did it turn out. I want to roast my Turkey in the oven, but don 't want to stuff it, so I am going to do the stuffing in the Nesco/Rival.

Stuffing

Welcome to DC!

I think it will be fine. The Nesco is a wonder! You could even cook your turkey in it. I usually make my stuffing in the microwave. It's just reheated bread, so nothing to worry about.

I agree with Dawg. I don't see why it wouldn't work. I have a wonderful stuffing recipe I make in the crock-pot. In view of that, I don't see why your Nesco wouldn't work just as well.

I use the Julia Child method, in my Nesco-type turkey roaster. It includes a double recipe of my world famous Sausage, Apple, and Fennel Corn Bread Stuiffing:

Ingredients:
1 day-old cast iron skillet cornbread
2 tsp light olive oil
6 ounces bulk Italian sausage
2 cups onion, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 large Granny Smith apple, diced
cup diced celery
cup diced fennel bulb
1 tsp garlic, minced
tsp poultry seasoning
tsp salt
tsp fresh ground black pepper
tsp crushed red pepper
1 cups turkey stock
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Instructions:

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and saute it until browned, stirring occasionally. Add the onion and bay leaf and cook until the onion starts to brown, stirring occasionally. Add the apple, celery, and fennel and continue to saute for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and the next 5 ingredients (through black pepper) and saute 1 minute more. Remove the sausage mixture from the heat and discard the bay leaf. Cool the sausage mixture to room temperature.

Crumble the corn bread into a large bowl. Add the cooled sausage mixture to the bowl and toss to combine. Add the broth and 2 eggs to the bowl and toss to combine. Place the dressing into the bottom of the turkey roaster, arrange the turkey pieces on top of the stuffing to cover and cook as directed in the America's Test Kitchen video.

I know for a fact it works beautifully! I do my stuffing in my handy dandy 6 qt. Nesco roaster every year. I love how it gets a lttile crusty around the edges and nearly everyone wants that part. You can stir the crusty parts in, to serve it if you choose. Don't hesitate...the Nesco roaster is perfect for stuffing!
I'd never use anything else.

Someone on Facebook mentioned that she likes to put turkey parts on top of the stuffing when she bakes it. That way, you get drippings flavoring the stuffing, plus extra turkey meat, if you need it.

Turkey parts go for stock. They aren't on the stuffing long enough to do any real good.

I've never heard of crock pot stuffing, Katie! When I googled it, there were so many versions! Would you be willing to share yours?

Now, ya'll are talking about dressing, not stuffing. It's only stuffing if it's in the bird.

I always make stuffing separately. Always turns out great.
