Most people look forward to the turkey — I look forward to the stuffing. To me, stuffing can make or break the entire Thanksgiving meal.
Traditionally, if it’s cooked within the turkey it’s called “stuffing” — and if it’s prepared outside of the bird, it’s called “dressing.” But for simplicity’s sake, we’re calling it all stuffing, because no matter how you cook it (or say it!), it’s all the same flavorful, delicious classic bread-based Thanksgiving side dish.
