CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HGs Save the Day Stuffing
Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without stuffing. But, as you know,
butter-soaked bread cubes (aka stuffing) aren't exactly low in calories. And
NO ONE (luckily, that includes you) should be stuffing-less on Turkey Day.
Good news. HG has been busy in the kitchen, whipping up her version of old-
fashioned bread stuffing. And it's not only insanely delicious, it's scary-low in
calories and fat, too. WOW! OK, enough of our yapping -- here's the recipe...
6 slices Wonder Light Bread, any variety (or another light bread)**
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 cup fat-free broth, chicken or vegetable; room temperature
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original
1 tbsp. LAND O LAKES Whipped Light Butter
2 cloves garlic; finely chopped
salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme
For best results, leave bread uncovered for a night or two, until slightly
stale. Otherwise, begin by lightly toasting bread. Preheat oven to 350
degrees. Cut bread into 1/2-inch cubes. In a medium-sized pot, combine
broth, celery and onion. Cook for 8 minutes at medium heat. Remove from
heat and add mushrooms and garlic. Season mixture to taste with salt,
pepper, rosemary and thyme. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with
nonstick spray, and place bread cubes in it. Once veggie-broth mixture has
cooled slightly, add Egg Beaters and butter. Pour mixture evenly on top of
bread. Mix gently with a fork. Bread cubes should be moist, but not
saturated. If necessary, add 1-2 tablespoons of water. Cover with foil and
cook for 20 minutes. Remove foil and fluff/ rearrange stuffing. Return to
oven (uncovered) for 10 - 15 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Serves

Bread Stuffing (Prepared from Mix), Average
Stuffing has long been a staple of Turkey Day meals. In fact, the Pilgrims
brought hundreds of pounds of this starchy side dish to the very first
Thanksgiving at Plymouth Rock (okay, we totally made that up
ssshhhhhh!). Traditional stuffing is a dish made from crusty bread (or a
packaged mix), veggies, egg, and a FREAKISH amount of butter. Most
recipes call for an entire stick of it! The result is a 1-cup serving that
contains close to 20 fat grams. Yikes! And as tasty as this stuff may be,
there's no WAY we'd waste all those fat grams on glorified bread. Save the
day with HG's version instead!

Chew on This:
Fifty percent of Americans say they put their Thanksgiving Day stuffing inside
the bird, while fifty percent prefer cooking it on the side.
