Which do you prepare, and you're more than welcome to include recipes.

Growing up in the north we always had stuffing. My husband's family (lifetime Southerners) have always done dressing - nothing goes in the turkey except celery, onion and maybe an apple for moisture.

Which do you do?

Oh, and my inlaws have always made the dressing, so I can't post the exact recipe, but I found one for sausage/cornbread dressing that sounds pretty much like it.

Dressing!!!! I stuff the turkey with Boudin sausage. We don't eat the sausage ( I don't like to eat sausage with "innards" in it ) but it makes the turkey so moist and lends a wonderful flavor.

Stuffing goes in the bird to cook, dressing is in a pan. Had this arguement yesterday with someone. I prefer stuffing.

Stuffing for us. biggrin.gif

ETA: I guess I did not understand the question. We do not put the stuffing in the bird. We just make it in a pan but call it stuffing. I guess it is called dressing if you don't stuff the bird? I don't know. rolleyes.gif

Yeppers... I lilke the dressing in a pan, I just like to stuff the bird with stuff that gives flavor. Dried cranberries, fresh sage and oranges are good to stuff it with for flavor also.

This is funny because my Dad used to get mad when we called the stuffing, dressing. He would always say that the stuffing came from a box and dressing was homemade - wait till I tell him there is a difference.

okay.I have had this converstion before and learned about yet another side to the "dressing/ stuffing" riddle. Apparently,some families bake it in round,ball shapes and eat it that way. No lie.( I can't wait to see what happens to this post now.) For me,I'm a true daughter of the South...it's dressing from a pan!

okay-for the next post is it giblet(like g as in give) or giblet(g with a J sound). I have the answer-it is pronounced giblet like the word "give" not the "J" sound. Do you call your daughter your little Jirl?
