Stop fussing over whether to prepare your Thanksgiving stuffing inside or alongside the turkey. Your life will be so much easier if you just embrace the wonder that is casserole dish stuffing.
And to help get you over that hump, we created a stuffing with big, bold flavors and plenty of texture. We kept the classic add-ins like celery, onions, thyme and sage, but sweetened them up with diced apples and golden raisins. Add a generous stick of butter and hearty wild rice, and you have a stuffing that will leave you delightfully stuffed.
By the way, the easiest way to cook wild rice is to treat it like pasta. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil, add about 1/3 cup of uncooked wild rice and cook for 45 to 55 minutes, then drain.
