Does stuffing get cooked before stuffing it in the turkey?


So it's my first Thanksgiving cooking the turkey. Does the stuffing get cooked before stuffing it in the turkey, or do I just get it moist with the butter and onions before putting it in?

    Not using the boxed kind. If I am doing it I want to do it right. Thanks so much. Now I just have to figure out which things to cook first! Fun times!

    Thanks Linnea. I am a bit worried about overcooking the Turkey to get the stuffing right. Hopefully I will figure it on in time!

    bill...I am aware of this info. However, for 50 yrs, my mother (world's best cook) knew that to avoid any risk, the stuffing must be allowed to cool completely before stuffing the bird. All expert chef's agree w/ this. I've followed Mom's advice.
