Holidays! This is our favorite time of the year. It’s all about good friends, good times and good food. Many of us, when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, see the bowl of stuffing on the table more important than the turkey. And who says lightened up has to be boring? Here we give you a crowd-pleasing dish that you and your guests will surely love. Mom’s Lighter Stuffing!
In this recipe, french bread, bacon, onion, celery, sage and parsley are used to make the best stuffing that won’t leave you feeling “stuffed” at all! The fun thing about this is you can really use anything you want. After all, it’s going to be another whole year before we can do this again!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Over medium heat, fry bacon in large fry pan for 2 minutes. Stir in butter and melt. Add onions, celery, parsley, sage, pepper and salt to pan. Cook on medium low heat until soft and onions are translucent, 5-10 minutes. Turn off heat and cool.
- Mix together chicken broth and egg in a medium bowl.
- In another large bowl, combine bread and sautéed vegetables. Stir in chicken broth and egg mixture. Mix well. Add more water if stuffing is too dry.
- Coat casserole dish with cooking spray. Layer in stuffing.
- Bake uncovered until golden, about 35 to 40 minutes.
