We called it Stuffing and it was always from inside the bird. There are very few who know I know NOTHING about cooking and throughout my life have learned to be grateful for the meal put in front of me. I keep quiet about whatever it is and compliment the cook and I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

This is a secret so Shhhhh! The only part of the meal I care about is the Stuffing and The Desert! And of course the Cook.

Happy Thanksgiving to All of My TOTV'S friends. You people are the Best. Even the ones who raise the Blood Pressure a Little.

Because everybody needs a laugh. We're having 20 out of town guests for Thanksgiving this year, made and froze 3 pans of dressing last week.

Of course I agree about the cook.

I would rank my Thanksgiving dinner favorites as follows:

1. Stuffing/Dressing - both qualify
2. Gravy
3. Mashed Potatoes
4. Turkey Wing or Drumstick
5. Jellied Cranberry Sauce (yes, from a can - none of that
homemade stuff LOL - I guess it's what you grew up on)
6. Stuffing/Dressing -- so good it gets another ranking

I agree with you somewhat, except I would make #6 be #2 and #5 be #3.

Must have stuffing, gravy, and a chunk of jellied cranberry sauce in each bite.

Your reordering of the list works just as well for me! -- On second thought, your list is better - cranberry before mashed potatoes. Yes!

I've always known it as 'stuffing'...even the extra that won't fit in the bird and is cooked in a baking dish in the oven was called 'stuffing' (and of course mixed with what was inside the bird. Bell's seasoning and sausage is my favorite. One year my uncle brought chestnut stuffing to the family gathering...it was nice, but it just didn't feel like we had a 'traditional' Thanksgiving dinner that year. It all goes back to what you grew up with. My mother made THE best pan gravy...I'm so glad that I hung around the kitchen back in the day and watched how she made it....just saying

DAVE. I have never heard of "Bell's Seasoning so I looked it up. It has Oregano and Thyme and Ginger in it?

It is said to be a New England tradition.

Bell's Seasoning | A New England Thanksgiving Classic - New England Today

My dressing has onion, celery, cooked chicken, butter and sage and parsley along with the bread. And it is very moist. As I said earlier, I have no clue what is traditional for others, only once since I was 21 did I eat at another table. The rest of the time I cooked the meal and tried to accommodate everyone present's favorites. Sometimes I would have more than ten sides. I did it all. This week someone is bringing a wonderful broccoli casserole, but the rest I will cook, or buy prepared. ( I shamelessly use Bob Evans already prepared mashed potatoes.) And there won't be that many sides. I don't think. I keep thinking of more.

What is your choice and what do you call it?

I also love cornbread dressing and oyster dressing. Never had it made with sausage or nuts. In fact in my adult life I have only had one Thanksgiving dinner I didn't cook myself.
I make it outside the bird with Pepperidge Farm Stuffing, celery, onions, one egg, crumble up sausage links, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper to taste and I use Turkey Stock.

Both what fits in the brine turkey and what’s left goes in large muffin pan for those who like crispy
