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 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.

Fresh Cranberry Stuffing

I always mix my cranberry¬†sauce with my mom’s homemade stuffing. That was the inspiration of just making a¬†fresh cranberry stuffing came from. I knew that cranberries would go well in a dressing recipe.

Stuffing With Cranberries and Walnuts

The walnut idea for a stuffing with cranberries and walnuts came 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.

    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!
