Is It Stuffing Or Dressing?

In the Cajun Crawfish Dressing: A Southern Holiday Side Dish I asked is it Stuffing or Dressing? The results were interesting. Northerners call it stuffing. Southerners call it dressing.

I did some research on is it stuffing or is it dressing? Here is what I found out:

  • Stuffing is the name when you put seasoned bread into a bird.
  • A dressing is when the seasoned bread is served alongside a bird.
  • Northern states tend to stuff birds.
  • Southern states tend to serve alongside the bird.

Savory Side Dish For The Holidays

Stuffing With Cranberries and Walnuts

The walnut idea for stuffing with cranberries and walnuts came about because of a Persian dish that had walnut and Pomegranate in it.  That Persian walnut dressing is a sweet and savory recipe, like this cranberry stuffing.

 

This Cranberry Walnut Stuffing turned out so yummy. Ok, I ate the entire bowl of walnut and cranberry stuffing for dinner. I am not ashamed to admit it. Cranberry walnut stuffing was really good!

Cranberries and walnuts! Yummy! And you know, I've bene thinking about doing a post on the difference between stuffing (which is cooked in a bird) and dressing - which is made on the side! I find most people don't know but the differences are fun imo!
