Let's Make It
Bring water and margarine to boil in medium saucepan. Add stuffing mix; stir just until moistened.
Stuff turkey lightly with prepared stuffing.
Bake as directed on turkey wrapper. Meanwhile, place any remaining stuffing in baking dish; refrigerate until ready to add to oven for the last 30 min. of the turkey baking time.
Keeping it Safe
Do not stuff the turkey until you are ready to put it into the oven to roast it. Stuffing is done when meat thermometer inserted in center of stuffing reaches 165°F. Bake any extra stuffing in separate covered baking dish in oven with turkey for the last 30 min. of the turkey baking time.
Use 1 pkg. (6 oz.) stuffing for a bird up to 8 lb., 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) stuffing for an 8- to 12-lb. bird, and 3 pkg. (6 oz. each) stuffing for a 12- to 20-lb. bird.
Add one or more of the following ingredients to the prepared stuffing before spooning into turkey: 1/2 cup of your favorite mixed nuts; fresh or dried fruit, such as 1 chopped apple or 1/2 cup dried cranberries; 6 oz. pork sausage, cooked and drained; 1/2 lb. chopped cooked chicken; 1 cup chopped bell peppers, cooked; 1 can (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained; 1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
