Stir well until croutons are evenly moistened. Rinse turkey again, shake out excess water. Stuff body cavity with stuffing LOOSELY (do not pack in or turkey will explode.. stuffing expands when cooking!) and put legs back into retainer to hold together. Stuff neck cavity. Fold wing tips behind bird's back, use to hold neck skin down so stuffing won't fall out from neck. Rinse out roasting pan and line with foil. Coat foil with vegetable oil. Coat turkey, all over, with vegetable oil. Place in roasting pan. Add any excess stuffing that will fit on top of turkey legs at body cavity opening, laying on top. Put in oven and roast for approx. 6 1/2 to 7 hours, depending on oven.
