Breadless Stuffing

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.

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
I was trying to do a simple, wild mushroom-studded sweet corn casserole to reinforce our holiday side dish repertoire, and before I knew it, I was eating the best, most flavorful cornbread dressing I'd ever tasted. Not only that, but we completely eliminated the step of having to make cornbread first!
