Terence tells "Why I Hate Stuffing"
Why I Hate Stuffing
By Terence Samuel | TheRoot.com
Mushy breadcrumbs in an empty carcass isn't my idea of a celebration.
Nov. 27, 2008-- I hate stuffing. No, I'm not saying that I hate a particular kind of stuffing—like stuffing that's too bread-crumby, or oyster stuffing, or stuffing that contains the organs of the turkey, or stuffing that's full of raisins or cranberries, though I am particularly repulsed by those.
I hate stuffing. All stuffing.
Stuffing is nothing more than an indistinguishable glop of mush, begging to be covered with gravy. It's a culinary afterthought; someone looked at the open cavity of a big bird a hundred or so years ago and thought, "We should stuff something in there."
