I created this recipe as an alternative to CORN BREAD STUFFING,using low carb Healthy Life bread to minimize the number of carbs & calories per serving. We were all very pleased with the outcome & results of this stuffing.

This was a much faster alternative to making my own bread then making the stuffing as well, which I had done in the past.I added extra veggies like Cole Slaw with carrots & red cabbage, with lots of peppers and celery to also help in keeping the calorie count down. It was delicious. I chose not to serve it with Cranberry sauce, because of the number of carbs per serving.

How to Make HEALTHY LIFE LOW CARB STUFFING

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 X 12 size baking dish with non stick cooking spray and set aside till needed. These are some of the main ingredients.
  2. Add the giblets to a small sauce pan, cover with water, then season with salt & pepper. Cook until tender. Remove giblets and allow to cool then chop into small pieces, and set aside till needed. Reserve the stock from the giblets should have at least 1 1/2 cups to be used in stuffing.
  3. Toast the bread & hot dog buns in a 350 degree F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till bread is toasted as desired. Remove from oven and break or cut into small pieces, & place in a large bowl then set aside till needed.
  4. Process the celery, onions, garlic cloves, peppers and Cole Slaw in a food processor or chop by hand.
  5. Melt butter in a large skillet, I used a 16 inch, then add in chopped Cole slaw and other chopped veggies, proceed to cook over medium high heat until veggies are tender and translucent.
  6. Add the chopped giblets & sauteed Veggies to toasted bread. Stir to blend together.Then pour in the reserved stock from giblets and stir again to mix.
  7. Now add both cans of undiluted soup to a medium size bowl, then add in the eggs, and whisk till blended.
  8. Pour soup/egg mixture over stuffing mixture, and stir well till blended. Add in sage & thyme, and salt and pepper if desired, then mix together. Adjust seasoning according to taste.
  9. Now pour mixture into prepared baking dish & Bake in Preheated 350 degree F. oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until heated through and stuffing is bubbling on outer edges. Serve as desired.
