I'm doing the Samin Nosrat buttermilk turkey today. I didn't have great results before but I got a turkey that wasn't pre-salted this time so we'll see
It was pretty good. Took way longer to cook than it expected though

Yeah I also say stuffing, maybe it’s a midwesterner thing? Although I’m not sure who even calls it dressing I assume some guy from Connecticut named Brantley

gE FLASH POLL:

Do you guys call it stuffing or dressing?

Conducted my own straw poll over the holiday. I do think "stuffing" is a Midwestern thing, and it's what I always called it growing up. But if you're not actually stuffing it in the bird (and you should not, for reasons great and small), then why call it stuffing? I've come to the conclusion that "dressing" is the appropriate term when prepared in a casserole style. It's been a real mental battle for me, but it's a struggle I must endure, as I am charged with making the dressing every year.

I think we call it stuffing because that's what the Stove Top box calls it.

Yes, I believe there is some merit to that point. I thought about bringing that up, but I didn't want to admit that I'd ever tried that affront to proper culinary art.

Crap you make a good point. Feels like a Herculean task to re-wire my brain even though it’s the right thing to do. This is going to be like when I learned the correct definition of “peruse”
