Every Thanksgiving and sometimes on Christmas, my boys and I have the debate…you know…is it stuffing or dressing? What do we call the mainstay dish of our holiday traditions? The boys say it isn’t stuffing unless it’s stuffed in the bird, I say it can be called either and be correct. 

I grew up calling it stuffing whether it was in the bird or in the pan. Do you call it stuffing or dressing at your house? It really doesn’t matter what side of the debate we land on, we all love to call it delicious holiday goodness! 

Here are some fresh, delicious takes on the dish which are sure to leave your family with happy tummies this holiday season.

The first recipe utilizes the low temperature setting of a slow cooker. Cooking foods at low temperatures helps to retain the nutritional value. For many, they are a time-saver as well allowing you to focus on other things while the food is cooking. For those who are energy conscious, the newer models have relatively low energy consumption and boast an easy clean up. What’s not to like?
