    I put apples & onions in mine.  I haven't 'stuffed' a turkey in many years.  I like the crunchy top stuffing gets out of the bird.

    I salt and pepper the cavity, then put in celery, onion and orange. I also never put stuffing in my turkey anymore.  Pat

    I just put chunked up celery, onions & carrots in the cavities.  When I make the gravy, I'll use my immersion blender to thicken the gravy w/the overcooked veggies.  I do also add thicken water & either corn starch or flour.  I think I remember a hint from a TV cooking show a while ago - to make your gravy look apealing & shiny....whisk in an egg yolk...anyone done that?  I figure we're already eating a high calorie gravy...hate to add any more cholesterol.
