How To Make Low Calorie Stuffing
This stuffing recipe is a lightened up version of a family favorite. It still has bacon and all the heartiness of herbs like sage, parsley, and celery.
- 12ozwhole wheat french bread,cut into small cubes
- 3slicescenter cut bacon,minced
- 1onion,large, minced
- 3stalkscelery,medium, minced
- 10sage leaves,fresh, minced
- salt and fresh pepper,to taste
- 1tspBell’s Seasoning

If the bread is fresh, preheat the oven and bake the bread cubes on 2 baking sheets at 250 degrees F for about 30 minutes, stirring half way until the bread is completely firm.
Increase the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large saute pan over medium heat cook bacon for about 2 minutes. Add butter; when melted add onions, celery, parsley, sage, salt and pepper and saute on medium low for about 5 to 10 minutes until soft. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine chicken broth and egg.
In a large bowl add bread and combine with sauteed vegetables. Add chicken broth and egg mixture and combine well. If stuffing is too dry, add a little more broth or water until the right consistency is achieved.
Spray a casserole with cooking spray, add stuffing.
If making alongside a turkey, pour some of the pan juices from the cooked turkey over the stuffing. Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden.
