Cut Calories with Our Healthier Thanksgiving Dinner Menu (Page 5)

4. Stuffing

How We Made It Healthier

We opt for lean turkey sausage in the stuffing rather than pork sausage to keep calories and fat in check; this still delivers plenty of great flavor. Many traditional recipes have added butter in the stuffing. We use a bit of chicken broth to keep ours moist without adding any fat or calories.
