EatingWell Cornbread & Sausage Stuffing

How We Made It Healthier

  • We opt for lean turkey sausage 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.
