Dressing or Stuffing

Follow along here.  You dress game (bird, deer, rabbit) by preparing it to be cooked...feathers off, skinned, cleaned up...good so far.  Some people don't understand and take it literally.

In a big bowl you mix all kinds of stuff together and put it in a pan and cook it.  That is dressing.

Some of that stuff you mixed up goes inside the turkey. That means you STUFF the turkey with dressing....ergo: stuffing

leftover stuffing or dressing goes on a bun.

Some people cut right to the chase

Others remain hopelssly confused.
