Q: What is the difference between stuffing and dressing?
A: Stuffing and dressing are interchangeable terms. Some believe that the preparation is what defines it, cooked in a roast or turkey = stuffing and cooked in a casserole/baking dish = dressing. Stuffing is the older word, dating back from the middle of the 16th-century, when it replaced the term forcemeat, which came from the French verb farcir (to stuff). Dressing became popular in Victorian times, when the notion of stuffing didn't sound mannerly. Today, stuffing is used more in the Northern states, while dressing is the accepted term in the South.
