Apple, wild rice and cranberry stuffing

    40 min

    This stuffing recipe makes enough to fill one large turkey or a goose. Don't pack it too tight - if you have any additional stuffing, you can place it in a baking dish, cover with buttered tin foil and cook alongside the turkey in the oven for about 45 minutes.
