1. It’s a time saver
No need to pre-cook the stuffing with your morning or evening meal. Just add the mix in baking dish, add some cornbread crumbs, and there you have it! The stuffing is ready with seconds.
2. You can make it ahead of time
It’s one of the easiest things to make ahead of time when you know how much you’ll be serving. And if you’re a bit strapped for cash, just buy a chicken and use that instead of buying a whole chicken.

6. Stuffing and Dumplings
Stuffing and dumplings were a staple in my family growing up. And by the time I was in high school, I had learned how to make them myself, which was a great skill to have!
What makes it so special about this stuffing mix is that it makes such delicious dumplings. These are not like the traditional boiled or fried ones you get in restaurants. These are much better, and much easier to make. Just add the mix in the dish, cover it up, and cook. Add some milk , salt, pepper & thyme for extra flavor, and you’ve got a dish that even your picky eater will love!
So get out your mixing bowl, your measuring spoons, and get ready to make some stuffing!
7. Just Stuff The Stuffing
You can do this dry or wet stuffing with this recipe. The only difference is that when you’re making dry ones you just soak the oats in water until they swell up then add them to your turkey mixture.
The wet ones are cooked with your turkey or chicken in the oven so they are already starting to simmer together when you add it to the turkey.
