Is It Stuffing Or Dressing?

In theCajun Crawfish Dressing: A Southern Holiday Side DishI 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.
