I am cooking the stuffing seperately and want to fill my turkey with something as it roasts. Any sugfestions? I was thinking fruit, like some apple? Not sure...any insight would be appreciated! happy Thanksgiving!

      What I'm putting into my 18-lb. unstuffed bird: halved lemon, halved onion, split head of garlic, thyme & sage.

        I never liked it, but I grew up with an old Irish tradition of stuffing a turkey with mashed potatoes, celery and onions. It did keep the bird moist, tho.

          My aromatics include onion, carrot, celery, 1/2 lemon, thyme.

            Along with the suggested herbs, put in cut up celery and onions.

              I have an herb garden in the backyard so I stuff w/ sage, parsley and thyme. Crap, now I got that stupid song in my head again. Seriously, it does make a good turkey.
