@jesssamesssa:  …I think I knew that, somewhere in my brain.  Do people call the stuff they put on salad…stuffing?  ??  Ha.

 

OP…I would check out recipes at bon appetit, I like their stuff in general. But you might want to call it “stuffing” so you get what you’re looking for.

@redheadedstranger:  Sorry, I’m not sure the difference between stuffing and dressing – I have a great recipe that goes inside the turkey if you want it…?

I made this recipe a couple times and its alway turned out really well and tasty.  The only things I did differently is made my own cornbread (instead of the mix), used less chicken broth than it called for and kept the dressing fluffy, instead of pressing it into the pan.

@peachacid:  Just to clarify it’s called dressing when you make it with cornbread and it’s typically cooked separate or outside of the bird.  

Stuffing is when it’s made with bread and/or cooked w/in the turkey.

@redheadedstranger:  I am not much help since my mother makes the dressing and basically uses “eyeball measurements”.  But do not stress because there is no way to please everyone when it comes to dressing.  Everyone has their idea of what is right and wrong.  Some want stuffing (unheard in my house).

My mom makes a chicken and dressing that involves cooking the cornbread, crumbling it up, adding hard boiled eggs (chopped), celery, and boiled/shredded chicken. Then add chicken broth until the entire thing is soupy and bake until it’s fluffy once again. Everyone always absolutely raves about it (I’m not the biggest fan of dressing in the first place).

My mom’s dressing is one of my favorite dishes of all time. I made it for the first time last Thanksgiving, and will definitely be making it again. We make our own chicken stock, crumble cornbread, add shredded chicken, and bake!  It’s delicious!

Trader joes has some that is delicious. Just cook it with some broth and its fantastic.
