Turkey Day is almost upon us, and with crazy work and family schedules, it's inevitable that we'll run out of time to make everything. So we decided to take one Thanksgiving staple, stuffing, and see if instant stuffing might pass the test for a quick fill-in. Guess what? It does, especially when stuffed into the bird.
We tested more than 18 kinds of instant stuffing to determine which brand could substitute for homemade (ok, mom's or dad's or Aunt Ethel's will always be superior), but who has the time these days? Not everyone serves a turkey on Thanksgiving, of course, so we divided the stuffings into four flavor categories: turkey, herb, chicken and pork. We picked our favorite and also tell you which one to avoid. The majority of these stuffings are available in supermarkets in the tri-state area and on a national level.
You'll notice that one specific brand dominated the others ... and it's a classic.
