  • Did You Know? While many people use the words "stuffing" and "dressing" interchangeably, the difference between the two is that stuffing is typically cooked inside the bird while dressing is cooked in a casserole dish.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

why do you use eggs in stuffing/dressing? I have never used eggs. what purpose do they serve?

Hi there! Eggs are used in stuffing to hold it together and give it a different texture!

I made this one year when I needed to have space in the oven for other dishes....it tasted just like my mom's dressing. Moist and delicious. So, even though it's been years, I wanted to post my comments. Instead of "Stovetop" stuffing, we got a large bag of herbed stuffing (maybe from Walmart), made the cornbread from package mix (Martha Whites Yellow Cornbread Mix, which we've used for years - best flavor). I would say try this, you will love it!! From a Southern girl.

Be sure to get the Martha White cornbread mix in the "Yellow" package, it might have Gladiola written on the right side....

I want save this recipe but there is no longer a "save" button to push! How do you save recipes?!

Hello! There is a "Save to Recipe Box" option under the "Print" option, in the top right hand corner of the recipe. If you are logged in to your Mr. Food account, that should save this recipe for you. :) Hope this was helpful!

do you have a cornbread recipe you could suggest for this recipe or a brand of cornbread to use? Does it matter if the cornbread is sweet or not?

We love Martha White Yellow Cornbread Mix and never use sweet for dressing in our neck of the woods. My mom always said you only use Sweet Cornbread Mix if you want a dessert, lol.

How long would this take to bake in the oven and if so what oven degree.

Hello! We suggest baking this in a 325 F degree oven for about 1 hour, uncovered. If you like the topping a little bit crispier, uncover it in the last 20 minutes or so. The time will vary based on the size of your pan. Enjoy!

Is there a reason that you haven't been on the channel 6 test kitchen week days lately? Always looking forward to your segment. Thank you
