Stuffing includes a variety of breadcrumbs 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.

Tips and warnings

  • Use leftover stuffing within three to four days.
  • Never heat stuffing in a slow cooker or a steam table because it will not reach the appropriate temperature to kill harmful bacteria.
  • Always remove the stuffing from the turkey after you cook it. The USDA does not recommend storing the turkey in the refrigerator with the stuffing inside of it.
