Every Thanksgiving table needs a savory, mouth-watering stuffing. We’re dishing up tips to lighten up this favorite cornbread stuffing recipe from Tyler Florence, but some things should stay untouched.
- Tone down the fat and calories with corn muffins – check labels to find ones that are lower in fat and sugar or make your own so you can control the ingredients.
- Use homemade or a low sodium boxed chicken stock to keep the sodium under control.
Stick With It
- Caramelizing the onions adds oodles of flavor with out extra fat and calories.
- No need to adjust the amounts of butter and heavy cream – as is, they only come out to about 70 calories per serving.
