Stuffing vs Dressing, A Thanksgiving Quandary

cornbreadbacon-550x408The age-old question remains: What’s the difference between stuffing and dressing. Traditional wisdom holds that stuffing is actually cooked inside the turkey, while dressing is cooked separately and served alongside.   Makes sense, right? But in my experience, it really comes down to geography. From the East Coast, never stuff the bird.  Further South, and everything is “dressing.” No matter your locale, you don’t have to stick with a traditional recipe.  Stuffings and dressings are getting a lot of love these days using all sorts of traditional and exotic ingredients.  Here are a few of our favorite recipes, from Sadie Rose Baking Company, right here in San Diego.
