About Stuffing:

It's not known exactly when stuffing first originated, but it has been dated back to Roman times — there were recipes found in a Roman cookbook that included stuffed chicken, hare, and dormouse.

More unusually, instead of a stuffing made from starch, an animal is stuffed with another animal. For example, a popular recipe using this method is 'A bird, within a bird, within a bird'. It's said to be extremely tasty and a perfect roast for Christmas time, although it has come under criticism for being wasteful and excessive — using three birds when one would be perfectly adequate.

Almost anything can be made into a stuffing, but the most popular ingredients tend to be rice, minced pork or beef, cous cous and cheese. In Britain, stuffing is often cooked and served on the side of a dish, instead of inside the bird or meat.
