Stuffing recipe, really? Thanksgiving’s gone and we’re all ‘stuffed’ out…
I’m writing today’s post for me for I know I will lose the recipe if I don’t write about it.
After the fabulous meal at my sister’s house on Thanksgiving, I decided to make a turkey breast over the weekend for we so love the smell of a roasting turkey in the oven. After “stuffing” my face on Thursday, I wanted to make a condensed lighter version of a Thanksgiving dinner….
Brined turkey breast with a light ‘au jus’ gravy with roasted acorn squash, brussel sprouts and…
I gave Hubs a choice between mashed potatoes and stuffing.
He picked mashed potatoes…
we had stuffing.
Last month’s issue of Cooking Light had an interesting recipe using apples, fennel and sausage and it was only 180 calories per serving (2/3 cup).
No guilt. Stuffing. Flavor. (Never the three words in one sentence!)
I just had to add a few of my own touches.
Get yourself a good loaf of artisan bread. Don’t be buying those pre-packaged stuffing cubes.
Seriously…you want it to taste good, right?
Cut 12 ounces of the bread into 1/2″ cubes and and in a 400 degree oven for 16 minutes stirring after 8 minutes.
In the meantime, brown sweet Italian sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat. I have to admit, I do invest in a good quality sausage from a local butcher.
