The stuffing recipes here at Spinach Tiger have evolved over the years. I was raised in the northeast, where bread was cubed and turned into stuffing, not dressing, with a base of celery, onions and sage.
When I was growing up, the stuffing was actually stuffed into the bird and that was my favorite part. I liked it soft and moist, as opposed to crispy edges.
More recently, I’ve changed my tastes, as at some point stuffing the bird became unsafe, and the only bread stuffing available had those crispy edges I grew to love, as long as there was gravy.
When I moved to the south, I discovered there was no stuffing. There was dressing, made with cornbread and on the sweeter side, although it still included the basic ingredients of celery, onion and sage.
After you get the basics down, the fun begins, because you can add in your favorite flavor/texture additions.
All of these are easy stuffing recipes, that can be adapted.
