Turkey and stuffing are Thanksgiving Day must-haves, but not everyone makes them the same way. When it comes to stuffing, where you live might make a difference in how you make it.

According to a new survey by Mrs. Cubbison’s Kitchen in Los Angeles, celery and onions top the ingredients list, then its regional differences:

* People in the Northeast and West are more likely to add carrots and sausage.
* 70 percent of people in the South and 60 percent of people in the Northeast said they like to cook stuffing in a casserole dish.
* 58 percent of people in the West and 45 percent of people in the Midwest said they prefer to cook it in the bird.

The survey also found that Thanksgiving dishes handed down from previous family generations, “stuffing” was by far the most important. But the term for this dish differed depending on locale – Southerners refer to the dish as “dressing,” while people in the East, Midwest and West say “stuffing.”
