This is our Mom's recipe that I have lightened which is a healthy diet habit that I usually follow. Healthy recipes are a good choice for the caloric Thanksgiving meal. She cooks her onions and celery in butter and adds extra butter to the stuffing mix at the end, if it is too dry. I have deleted butter from the mix and cook the vegetables in broth, and I added an extra egg for moisture.
My Mom, also uses the turkey inwards and boils them with water and makes her own broth. You can do that too, but I am lazy and cheat with low sodium chicken broth. Your choice!
Check out the Cornbread Dressing Recipe on Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website if you are looking for something different, and healthier for your Thanksgiving dinner.
