  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  2. Place bread cubes on baking sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until toasted.

No more boxed stuffing for me! This recipe was surprisingly easy to make. I had no idea that cranberries had so much sugar!. Had to really go out of my shopping comfort zone to find them, but totally worth it. I also found some diabetic bread and used that as well. I do want to try adding eggplant next time.

As soon as I bit into this I was in love! Took me right back to my Mom's kitchen on Thanksgiving. It is very simple to make. CeeJay, in place of the mushrooms, I would suggest either zucchini or eggplant. Both saute well. These are both non-starchy veggies with lots of fiber that help balance out the carbs from the bread.

I found a similar recipe that can be made 3 days ahead and stored in the refrigerator . Am I correct in thinking this recipe can be made ahead also? Can a crock pot be used to cook it? If so, at what temperature and for how long should it be cooked.

We do not recommend making this recipe three days in advance. However, making it a day in advance is okay. If you'd like to make this stuffing in a slow cooker, just cook on LOW heat for 3 - 3-1/2 hours, or until heated through. Enjoy!

Question What can I use in place of the mushrooms? Some family members don't like them but another is diabetic.

Thank you for your question! You can leave the mushrooms out completely if your family doesn't like them. You can also substitute with another vegetable like celery...or something your family enjoys.
