"uncommon" ingredients in dressing/stuffing

I've always been fascinated by the millions of variations in dressing (or stuffing, if that's your preferred term). A friend of mine, who's the same way, reports that her family's dressing includes milk as part of the liquid. She's never heard of anyone else doing that, but it turns out that another friend's family dressing uses milk, too. (Same part of the state, interestingly.) I'd also never heard of hard-cooked eggs in dressing until I was having a nce conversation with a lady in line waiting for a cashier early one Black Friday morning in Plano, TX. I believe she thought I was a little wacko, when I questioned her further about the egg.....

Other odd ingredients? Thoughts on how they get in there?
