LOW CARB STUFFING
3 stalks celery, chopped, about 6 ounces
1 large onion, chopped, 7 ounces
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup butter
1/4-1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
10 slices Oroweat Carb Counting bread, toasted and cubed*
1 cup chicken broth, homemade recommended
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1 egg, beaten
SautÚ the celery, onion and mushrooms in butter until very tender; stir in the poultry seasoning and parsley. Place the bread in a large bowl and toss with the vegetable mixture. Add about 1/2 cup broth and mix well. Add more broth until it reaches the desired consistency. I like mine rather moist. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the beaten egg. Bake, covered, in a greased 1 1/2 to 2 quart casserole at 350║ for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15-30 minutes to browned on top.
Makes about 8-12 servings

Although the carbs are a bit high, they are much lower than the kind with regular bread. This tastes like the real thing. I cut each slice of bread into 16 pieces and next time I will make smaller pieces. Definitely not for induction, and even on maintenance you'll need to watch your portions of this, but it was a nice treat for Thanksgiving. Click the photo to see a close-up.
