Roast Turkey with Sage Stuffing

Total time: 4 hours
    A stuffed 8 - 10 pound turkey will take 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hours to took.  You need a meat thermometer so you don't over cook it.  It is overcooking that causes dryness.  BTW, I checked some of my many cookbooks for roasting times and they ranged from 2 1/2 hours to 4 hours for an 8 lb bird... that's a big range - get a thermometer.

          Lay the bread out the night before to let it dry.  It, doesn't have to be perfectly, evenly dried.  If you are using the giblets add 4 more slices of bread.
