Stuffing! A Traditional Food on the Thanksgiving Table-

National Stuffing Day is celebrated November 21!

Definition of Stuffing
In cooking, stuffing or dressing (specifically for poultry) is a substance used to fill a cavity in another food item. Many foods are stuffed, including meats, vegetables, and fruits.

Is Stuffing the same as Dressing?
NO!! I know you read all the time about southern dressing being stuffed in a turkey or a chicken but let me set the record straight!  In the South, what is called "Southern Dressing" or "Cornbread Dressing" is not usually used for stuffing chicken or turkey like you are led to believe. This mistake is a play on words. There is a difference between "stuffing and "southern dressing" although stuffing is sometimes called  Just "dressing".
Even though there is a difference between the two, both are traditional on the Thanksgiving table-

What is Southern Dressing?
Both Stuffing and Southern Dressing is made from bread. Stuffing is made from chunks of seasoned bread crumbs where Southern Dressing is made from either white, yellow or both types of baked cornbread.
(types of cornbread)

Southern Dressing is usually baked in a dish like a casserole because it is not traditionally as dry and chunky like stuffing tends to be. Although stuffing is sometimes called dressing, dressing is very moist and made with lots of eggs, chicken stock and looks really soupy when pored in a dish. This soupy cornbread mix could by NO MEANS be put inside a turkey or chicken, therefore it could never be used to STUFF a turkey with.

Stuffing History
It is not known when stuffings were first used. The earliest documentary evidence is the Roman cookbook Apicius, which contains recipes for stuffed chicken, hare, pig, and dormouse. Most of the stuffings described consist of vegetables, herbs and spices, nuts, and spelt (an old cereal), and frequently contain chopped liver, brains, and other organ meat.

In the Middle Ages, stuffing was known as farce (from the French); the root of the word 'forcemeat'. The term 'stuffing' is first attested in 1538. After about 1880, the term stuffing was replaced by dressing in Victorian English. Both terms are used today, occasionally to differentiate between varieties.
