Stuffing or Dressing?

Is if Stuffing or Dressing?
There is much confusion about this breaded side dish that is a staple of holiday menus.
If they both have the same ingredients, then what’s diffference?
The difference in the name is only a matter of where is cooked.
Put simply, stuffing goes in the bird, dressing goes beside it.
The recipe being shared today is an easy and delicious comfort food.
(we are going to cook it dressing style)


16oz Bread Crumbs
1c celery        1c onion
1c pecan        1c apple
1c mushroom 1c carrot
8TB butter          2 1/2c broth
1 1/2 TB sage  1/2 tsp marjoram
1tsp thyme        3TB parsley
1tsp basil
salt and pepper
*the recipe calls for 1c of each veggie/ fruit…
we did a bit more than that to feed a family of six, plus leftovers…

in a large pot, over medium heat, start melting the butter. Add the celery, carrots, apples, mushrooms, spices and broth. stir until butter is melted and everything is well mixed. Add the bread crumbs and pecans and mix until the bread crumbs are well saturated and all is evenly incorporated.

disperse the dressing in a glass baking pan and bake at 350F until the top has a golden crust
(around 45min- 1hr)
 serve hot
