Recipes for stuffing have been found in Roman cookbooks, and “stuffing” was a common tradition throughout the “Pilgrim Era”.
Here is an easy, healthy, low-carbohydrate and absolutely delicious bread stuffing compliments of Genetix Program.
Here it is:
(makes 12 servings) Serving size 1/2 cup
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup “Pacific Brand” low sodium broth (add more as needed to your preference)
1 tbsp of sage or poultry seasoning
Dash Morton’s Lite Salt
Dash Pepper (approx. ¼ tsp)
12 slices of diet honey wheat bread (40-50 cal per slice) cubed. Bake bread in oven @ 375 (spread out across oven), until deep golden brown
1-In medium fry pan, sauté onion in nonstick cooking spray until browned or “caramelized”… add 1/3 cup chicken broth and celery continue, and until tender. Remove from heat.
2-Stir in Poultry Seasoning or Sage, pepper, and salt.
3- Place dry bread cubes in large mixing bowl. Add onion/celery mixture.
4-Drizzle with enough broth to moisten, and lightly toss.
5-Coat casserole dish with non-fat cooking spray. Place stuffing in dish and bake @ 375F for 20 minutes, or until top is golden-browned.
Tip: For more fiber, we used whole wheat light bread. Or, for a different texture and flavor….use cornbread instead or 1/2 wheat bread and 1/2 cornbread.
