These stuffing recipes are so good they’re making us use FOWL language

Whether you call it “stuffing” or “dressing,” there is no doubt that the dish is a must-have at your Thanksgiving table. The history of stuffing tells us that the term first appeared in English print in 1538, and the reason for the alternative term “dressing” has to do with Victorian aristocracy. (They thought “stuffing” sounded too commoner.)

Today in the United States of America, “stuffing” and “dressing” are both used, though “dressing” is reportedly used more frequently on the West Coast while “stuffing” is used in the South.

Whatever you may call it, if you’re in charge of bringing the stuffing/dressing to your Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving, fear not: We’ve found the most-pinned recipes for stuffing on Pinterest. (If you’re gluten free and/or paleo, our apologies — these recipes are all meat-based.)
