How to Reheat Stuffing

Save

Stuffing includes a variety of bread crumbs mixed with ingredients like onion, celery and spices. You can prepare a stuffing from scratch or purchase it in a box from the store. The cavity of a turkey or chicken often is filled with the mixture. When you have leftover stuffing, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The stuffing needs to be reheated properly to kill harmful bacteria to prevent illnesses.
