First of all, is it called stuffing or dressing? And do most people actually prefer it cooked in the bird?
Growing up, I've always known it as stuffing and traditionally it was made outside the bird and by one of my aunts and more often than not, it was heavy on the celery. For awhile, I thought stuffing was just okay, not great but good. Then, I tried oyster stuffing and realized I really hadn't been eating what I now consider stuffing. I'm talking about rich, fatty, flavorful stuffing that could be eaten as a main course be itself. call me crazy, but I simply love a good oyster stuffing.
Traditionally what kind of stuffing, or "dressing" do you eat? I'm curious to find out what the norm is?
Other kinds of stuffing I absolutely adore:
