There are hundreds of ways to make stuffing. It can be moist or dry, prepared with French, sourdough, or cornbread, adding ingredients such as sausages, oysters, onions, mushrooms or chestnuts, to name a few. The possibilities are endless…I know how hectic the holiday’s can be so I’ve made it easier by starting with a box of Mrs. Cubbison’s Stuffing. The box is filled with seasoned dried bread cubes. The key to making this recipe skinny is what’s added to it. I’ve added a medley of vegetables sautéed in reduced-fat butter and sprinkled in a few dried cranberries for color. One skinny serving has 186 calories, 5.9 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. If made with regular butter, one serving has 214 calories ad 13.4 grams of fat. This stuffing recipe makes a terrific side dish anytime for chicken, beef or pork.
