Tips  

Expert Tips

For 6 grams of fat and 130 calories per serving, decrease the butter to 1/4 cup. Heat butter and 1/2 cup chicken broth to boiling in Dutch oven over medium-high heat, and cook celery and onion in the broth mixture.

Just about any kind of bread makes great stuffing! Try whole-grain, sourdough, rye, herb or corn bread. You can even mix and match bread varieties if you’d like.
