    I have heard people in the midwest use either stiuffing or dressing. When I lived in PA we had "filling"!

    Stuffing. In the bird out of the bird, doesn't matter.

    Dressing! We use equal amts of cornbread(Stoneground) and toasted hamburger buns. A couple of eggs to bind, broth from the turkey to mix until VERY moist, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. This is put in a foil lined pan and baked at about 350 degrees until brown on top.

    Dressing.
    Cornbread, leftover biscuits, onion, celery, poultry seasoning, eggs, broth, & boned chicken, cooked in a casserole dish. Gravy, made with the giblets, broth, & a little of the cooked dressing.

    Stuffing - That's what you shove up a big birds Hinny.
    Dressing - That's what you bake in a pan.
    Filling - That's what it is when you pig out on it.

    I've done it both ways (and cooked for a living for a time) and frankly I think stuffing a bird is overrated and a good way to get sick if it isn't done correctly. Plus even stuffing a big turkey doesn't make nearly enough stuffing. I make a big 9x13 pan at least even with a small bird. Heck I make that much when I roast a chicken.

    The only reason to have turkey on any occasion is for the stuffin that is in the bird Bread stuffin with lots of sage, maybe sausage, onion, celery, moistened with the water that boiled the gizzard, etc. You make a lot, so you can also have a pan of extra. Yumm-m-m-m-m.

    It's as good the next morning cold from the reefer.

    both. make up a big batch in your bread bowl, stuff the turkey (never poisoned anyone yet, nor been poisoned) and the rest put in a dish withthe turkey neck on top.

    babs


    ...and baked. not deep fried. Never heard of that 'till my sister moved to florida.
