Some families call this "dressing" while others call it "stuffing". Whatever your family prefers, there's no denying that corn bread, broth, and savory herbs come together beautifully in this traditional dish.

Ingredients

  • vegetable oil spray
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 green onions, medium (thinly sliced)
  • 1 celery rib, small
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, fat-free low-sodium
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups crumbled cornbread
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable oil spray.
2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the green onions, celery, and carrot for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the broth, sage, and pepper.
3. Put the cornbread in a large bowl. Stir in the vegetable mixture, egg substitute, and pecans (the mixture will be moist). Transfer to the baking pan.
4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown on top. Transfer to a serving bowl.
