It's hard to imagine delicious stuffing without the crispy — yet somehow still delightfully moist — bread bits and all of the other carbohydrate-laden deliciousness, but don't get too discouraged if you are currently trying to cut down on carbs.
There are still ways to recreate yummy stuffing that won't make you feel like you're missing out on the Thanksgiving tradition. With a couple of strategic swaps, stuffing recipes can be converted into low-carb masterpieces you can serve to any member of the family — whether they are low-carb or not.
Note: Generally, the amounts in these recipes will stuff a medium- to large-size turkey for a family gathering. As a rule of thumb, use a third to half the recipe to stuff a chicken or to roast separately in a pan to serve with pork. To roast separately from the turkey, butter a suitably sized baking pan, spoon the mixture in, and smooth the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes, until the top is crispy.
This recipe is a version of a traditional American recipe. Like many recipes for stuffing, the original recipe contained apples, but as apples are a higher-carb fruit, we have substituted cranberries, which have the dual effect of making the stuffing lower carb than the regular recipe and also adding a little extra seasonal color and flavor.
