I love turkey and stuffing and I prepared this very easy, delicious recipe using both ingredients in one baking dish. The turkey juices flavor the stuffing, and the result is delicious. You can make any bread stuffing you like. I prepared Pepperidge Farm with broth and simply added sauteed onions and celery and some currants. —recipegal

This sounds good in theory but the result was disappointing. I followed the recipe as written except I didn't use the melted butter. I baked it for about 1 hour 10 minutes. What I ended up with was perfectly cooked turkey thighs with crisp skin but there was so much fat and juice that the stuffing ended up a huge pile of wet sludge. I drained off as much as possible then added the stuffing back into the bowlful I still had left and mixed it in. It really didn't improve the flavor of the stuffing either. Won't be trying this again.

I made my own dressing with cracked wheat bread cubes, sautéed mushrooms, celery and onion. I used 6 thighs and needed 2 hours of cooking time. Otherwise, a great way to have turkey without the whole bird!

Just what I was looking for. We do't really like the white meat. And a whole turkey is just too much. that being said, the best stuffing is that from INSIDE the bird, so that it is infused with the juices from the turkey. this seems like a great way to get both without using the whole turkey. Thanks
