Never heard of a stuffing cage, and believe me, I have a lot of gadgets. I have been making dressing for the last few years. The cheesecloth idea is a good one, though.

I make stuffing for our 24 pounder every year and we don't have a whole lot of trouble (as in NONE) spooning it out of there.
The REAL problem we have is that there is never enough stuffing. I stuff the neck cavity also and that can be taken out as a whole piece--sort of as I guess is the idea for a cage.
I actually like the flavor of the turkey stock with the dressing/sagey taste. Very rich tasting.

I will confess I am a recovering gadgetaholic, I felt I must get something in my life under control (the rest of my 'aholicisms' I just enjoy).

But even in the depths of my addiction, at three AM on a Sunday morning with a wee dram in me, I don't think I would have succombed to a spiel for a dressing cage.

But that is not criticism, hardly. I have so many useless gizmos that will not even sell on Ebay that I am not one to talk.

I don't know how many items I have to probe the most private parts of a shrimp's anatomy to remove its intestine and tear off its shell. None of them are worth a darn. But at one time I thought one of them would make one of life's most difficult tasks simple.

Have some plastic cooking oven that cost a bunch I have never used, and then there is this expensive electrric smoker gizmo I could probably turn into a planter.

Could go on and on.

Have been through the twelve step program. The last test was to sit through a six hour nonstop Ron Propeil marathon with a phone and credit card in your hand. If you call anyone but your mother you are bumped back to step one.

And I made it!

Now I have to start working on my cookbook buying urge.

And who knows, someday I may be out there searching for another addiction to get over.

Just a thought.

Tme for my medication.

Yeah, I also, in the past, would put some of the stuffing in the neck cavity also. but as of late, I've been cutting back on the amount of stuffing that I make, since it's only me.

That is, unless I invite friends and family members over for dinner. And yes, I, too, like to use the drippings from the bird for the stuffing and for gravy.

Yeah, Auntdot, I think I got enough gadgets myself, so I think I ease up and just chill out on that.
