If you don't want to bake this stuffing inside a 12- to 15-pound turkey, place it in a sprayed 9 x 13-inch baking dish and bake covered at 375°F for 30 minutes, then uncovered until lightly browned, about 15 minutes more. If you want to test it out before making it on Thanksgiving Day, consider doing a half recipe inside a large chicken.
