Technically it's called stuffing if it's cooked inside the turkey and dressing if it's cooked in a pan outside the turkey. Most of the time, people use the terms interchangeably, or simply call it what is the popular term where they live, or what their mom or grandmother called it.  Many years ago it was mostly called dressing because the word stuffing was considered vulgar. Lol Then after Stovetop stuffing came on the market, most people started calling it stuffing.

I call it stuffing. I always thought dressing was the Southern term for it.

Stuffing.  I grew up low income and Stovetop stuffing is what we had.

I've always called it dressing. I've never actually had it when it was cooked inside the bird. I love homade cornbread dressing, and I'm making it this year.

Lol at stuffing being vulgar!!

I say stuffing. Even if it's not inside the bird, it's still stuffing. Dressing to me just makes me think of salad.

It's been called stuffing for longer than the US has been around so I think I'll retain the correct name.

Dressing. Because it is always cooked outside the turkey.
