Wild Rice Stuffing

Wild Rice Stuffing Recipe
For a classic stuffing, place the rice mixture in the cavity of a turkey before roasting. Make sure to get an accurate temperature reading on the stuffing as well as the bird--both should reach an internal temperature of 165°. You can also make this to serve alongside a roast or ham.
