The PR eggs are smaller than the RIRs and not pink. They also have a thicker membrane.
I do believe you are our resident EGG-SPURT!

"I never understood where the term "dressing" came from." bakechef

one dresses (stuffs) then trusses the bird. It is a regional term going back at least to colonial times when people tried to be polite even when talking about cooking.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMM Then why is "Dressing" used for NOT cooked/stuffed into the turkey? I call it stuffing no matter where it is cooked. LOL

I agree, otherwise you'd have to call it dressing until you stuffed it in the bird, and stuffing from the bird, but dressing when cooked on the side. Too silly.

My mother made traditional sage bread stuffing for the cavity and sage potatoes and sausage stuffing for the neck. There was very little of the potato stuffing, so I made sure I always got some of that before anything else on my plate.

I don't think anyone made dressing/stuffing that wasn't inside the bird back then.
