In my humble opinion, there IS a difference between stuffing and dressing. Stuffing is, well, stuffed into something else -- meat, poultry, seafood or veggies. And dressing is baked in a pan alongside the protein you happen to be cooking.

The debate rages on, however. The National Turkey Federation says the terms can be used interchangeably. But I stand pat. Using the terms to mean the same thing have created a lot of misunderstandings in my household! Never again. Everyone is clear on my definitions, so no surprises at the dinner table anymore.

Here are some of my favorite Eastern European Stuffing / Dressing Recipes.
