 Technically, if it's in the bird it's stuffing, if it's not it's dressing, but most people call it one or the other because their family did or that's what it's known as in their part of the country. I really think that because Stovetop decided to call their product stuffing, that has become the more popular term.

 For Thanksgiving we make two-bread stuffing (in the bird) and cornbread dressing (as a side dish). That way everyone gets what they want.

DH stuffs the bird but I prefer it in a pan as a side dish.  It's all stuffing to me!

 Certainly. This is just an estimate, I've made it so many times, I don't go by a recipe anymore.

Savory Cornbread Dressing

1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups crumbled leftover cornbread

2  cups day-old bread cubes
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken or turkey broth, more if needed

1. Cook celery, onion and parsley in butter over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Continue cooking until onions are soft and tender.

2. Place bread cubes and corn bread crumb in large bowl and pour in vegetables. Add salt, pepper and broth and mix well. Place in a greased 9x9-inch pan and bake at 350°F for 35 to 45 minutes or stuff lightly into the cavity of an 18 to 20 pound turkey.
