Breadless Stuffing

Rating: 4 stars 24
After the holidays, I had an extra turkey breast in my freezer. Since starting the 'South Beach Diet,' I couldn't figure out how I could make a great stuffing for phase one. I think I have come close. This is a lot better than I even though it would be!

Vegetarian Stuffing

Rating: 4.5 stars 77
I take this to our family gathering for the holidays. Everyone likes it - the meat eaters don't miss the giblets. You can make it vegan by deleting the mushroom soup and increasing the broth, also use no/low fat soup if you like. Chopped walnuts can be substituted for chopped pecans.

Chestnut Stuffing

I have had this stuffing every Thanksgiving my entire life (26 years, that's a lot of stuffing!), it is truly a family tradition. Trust me, this is the best stuffing you'll ever taste! Thanks goes out to my Nana, the best cook in the Midwest!
